Golden amber color. Aromas of dulce de leche on shortbread, raisin toast, leather, and dried herbs and spices with a slightly chewy, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, medium-length cedar, orange sherbet, and vanilla extract finish. A piquant rum for punches and parties.

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.
