Brilliant amber color. Aromas of mace, cinnamon, rum-raisin, orange blossom, patent leather, and tropical pineapple with a satiny, bright, off-dry light-to-medium body and an even, breezy spice cake, caramel coated apricot, vanilla-cola, and licorice finish. A spicy, serious rum with a great copper-pot character.

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.
