Brilliant dark amber color. Complex aromas and flavors of rose petals, chocolate caramel, cigar box, and pecan pie with a thick, lively, off-dry full body and a warming, very complex, endless finish with accents of caramelized oranges, English toffee, candied mango and lychee, and moist tobacco finish. Give your guests some "wow factor" with this elegantly brawny rum.

Aged Rum

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.
