Golden amber color. Bright, toasty, sweet aromas and flavors of caramelized nuts, pencil shavings, dried fruit compote, and spicy custard with a supple, soft, dryish medium body and a smooth, brisk spiced cherries and papayas, roasted nuts, and rubber leaf finish. A very mellow, nutty, oak accented gold rum with a pleasing spiciness.

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.
