Dark amber color. Confected aromas and flavors of nutella, caramel layer cake, milk chocolate covered espresso beans, german chocolate cake with coconut frosting, and maple syrup with a round, crisp, moderately sweet medium-to-full body and a warming, stimulating, medium-length finish displaying accents of maraschino cherry and sesame finish. A not-too-sweet sipping rum with heaps of chocolatey, nutty flavor.

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.
