Golden amber color. Fruity, nutty aromas and flavors of caramelized fruits and nuts, jamaica drink, hearts of palm, and crystallized ginger with a glycerous, fruity sweet full body and a tingling, thought-provoking, long finish displaying impressions of marshmallow, chocolate fudge ice cream, roasted nuts, and leather finish. A rich and satisfying sipper.

Rum Aged 3 years or less

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.
