Brilliant amber color. Aromas of tobacco, candied mango, banana cream puff, butterscotch, animal crackers, and cinnamon with a glycerous, lively, off-dry medium body and a peppery, engaging, medium-length allspice, jerk seasoning, lime leaf, and marzipan finish. A spicy dark rum for sipping and cocktails; perfect for a dark and stormy!

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.
