Amber color. Candied aromas and flavors of chocolate covered caramel, butterscotch chips, vanilla custard, and barbecue sauce with a round, lively, off-dry medium-to-full body and a peppery, long finish that shows accents of Indian rice pudding and orange blossom water finish. A sweet, caramelly rum with tons of vanilla character.

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.
