Mahogany color. Tropical, nutty aromas of soursop and dried figs and dates, dried mango and papaya, mixed chopped roasted nuts, and smoky oak with a thick, lively, off-dry full body and a peppery, compelling, easy passion fruit glaze, saffron and cola, conditioned leather wallet, and peppercorn sauce finish. A tropical trail mix of a rum for sipping.

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.
