Amber color. Aromas of cedar, creamy caramel, cacao nibs, clove, and macadamia cookie with a lightly tannic, dryish medium body and a warming, delightful, medium-long almond-studded toffee, roasted mango, hint of espresso, and olive oil finish. A sturdy and warming rum best with cigars; try in stirred rum cocktails too!

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.
