Copper color. Confected aromas of black forest cake, orange marmalade, pecan frosting, chocolate biscuit, and stewed strawberry with a round, bright, fruity medium body and a warming, delightful, medium-length chocolate genache, French cruller donut, poached apricots and mango, and grand Marnier finish. A rich, smooth rum with lots of sweet bakery notes; a decadent liquid hug.

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.
