Amber color. Toasty, sweet aromas of mocha latte, amarena cherry, mahogany, leather, and caramel-coated nuts with a round, crisp, fruity sweet medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long fresh grated cinnamon, black peppercorns, and molasses cookies finish. A decadent and roasty aged rum in the most serious class; sip respectfully.

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.
