Date Tasted:

Amber color. Aromas of cherries, chocolate-covered toffee, leather, and praline with a satiny, crisp, dryish medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length coriander, nutmeg, acacia, and tiramisu finish. A smooth-sipping aged rum with a remarkably silky character; attractively dry and great for cigar pairings or classic cocktails.

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.
