Golden amber color. Aromas of snickerdoodle cookies, green apple, butterscotch, plantain, and roasted pineapple with a soft, crisp, fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, cheery apple pastry and spice cake finish. An easy-drinking aged rum for tropical cocktails.

Rum Aged more than 3 Years

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.
