Mezan
Rum Guyana 2005

Category: Aged Rum

Date Tasted:
Country: Guyana
Alcohol: 40%
Pale golden straw color. Mild, spicy aromas and flavors of fuel-like minerals, honeyed carrot cake, nougat, and saddle soap and suede with a soft, bright, dryish medium body and a tingling, compelling, medium-length nuts, straw and leather, coconut water, and green tobacco finish. A mineral-laden, lighter styled aged rum that will be good with cigars.

Aged Rum

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.
