Premium Dark Rum

Category: Rum (Aged 3 years or less)

Date Tasted:
Country: Saint Lucia
Alcohol: 43%
Amber color. Aromas and flavors of toasted dark nougat, mocha creme brulee, white pepper, and hint of corsage and swimming pool with a silky, bright, dryish medium body and a tingling, complex, long finish that shows nuances of caramel creme Anglaise, grilled molasses fruitcake, tobacco in a cedar box, and chicory and black garlic finish. A flavorful and nuanced dark rum that will elevate cocktails.

Rum Aged 3 years or less

Añejo and Age-Dated Rums are aged Rums from different vintages or batches that are mixed together to insure a continuity of flavor in brands of Rum from year to year. Some aged Rums will give age statements stating the youngest Rum in the blend (e.g., 10-year-old Rum contains a blend of Rums that are at least 10 years old). A small number of French island Rums are Vintage Dated.
