Amber color. Aromas of toasted cinnamon roll, black tea, orange zest, vanilla-caramel, and cedar with a crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length roasted pineapple, marcona almond, spiced fig, and pencil shavings finish. A solid rum that will suit most any classic rum cocktail.

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.
