Medium copper color. Roasted aromas of molasses chews, hazelnut brittle, leather, latex, and cherry liqueur with a glycerous, crisp, fruity sweet medium body and a smooth, delightful, medium-long oloroso sherry, cacao nibs, espresso, and root beer candies finish. A rich and nutty dark rum that will be great on the rocks or as a roasty addition to tiki cocktails.

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.
