Bronze color. Aromas of maple glaze, oatmeal-molasses cookies, prune, dried mango, bananas foster, and Douglas fir with a glycerous, crisp, fruity sweet medium-to-full body and a sleek, interesting, medium-length alfajores, shortbread, vanilla bean, and cinnamon dusted cherries in syrup finish. A silky-smooth aged rum inflected with a maple sweetness and super sippable character.

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.
