Golden amber color. Candied aromas of peanut confection, rice cake, malted milk, and root beer with a slightly chewy, lively, dryish full body and a warming, epic, very long nut milk, eucalyptus, lime leaf, and cedar hanger finish. A robust and masculine rum with great chewy tannins.

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.
