Dark copper color. Aromas of dried mango, nut skins, caramel sauce, and coriander with an oily, soft, dryish medium-full body and a tingling, charming, medium-length suede, spiced apple cider, prunes, and Chinese 5 spice finish. A savory rum for sipping or craft cocktails.

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.
