Light gold color. Delicate aromas of bananas foster, pencil shavings, honey roasted nuts, and pepper with a soft, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a tingling, engaging, medium-length iced horchata, coconut milk, cedar, and tobacco leaf finish. A lively gold rum with spicy wood character.

Golden Rums, also known as Amber Rums, are generally medium-bodied. Most have spent several years aging in oak casks, which give them smooth, mellow palates.
