Brilliant gold color. Aromas of cannabis, nut brittle, tobacco, orange zest, and clove with a round, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, medium-long almond biscotti, mango coulis, allspice, bay leaf, and bananas in caramel finish. A dense and flavorful rum that’s delicious for sipping; plenty of body and flavor to stand up in tropical 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.
