Medium amber color. Creamy, toasty aromas and flavors of caramelized banana, creme brulee, and roasted nuts in a cedar bowl with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, long finish that exhibits touches of toffee, sweet and peppery spices, cola float, and minerals finish. A silky and artfully balanced dark with deep flavors and superb versatility.

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.
