Dark amber color. Sweet aromas and flavors of butterscotch, burnt sugar, blackstrap molasses, cooked pineapple, and dark roasted pecan with a satiny, bright, off-dry light-to-medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long orange zest and black plum finish. A deluxe aged rum that grows more ambrosial with each sip.

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.
