Copper color. Aromas of dried mango, prune, leather, and black tea with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming, intricate, long dark chocolate covered espresso bean, chicory coffee, pineapple upside down cake, and tamarind finish. A dry, robust, flavor-building rum that will be best with cigars sipped on a warm night.

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.
