Bright copper color. Delicate, attractive, roasted aromas of bbq spiced nuts and Mexican chocolate with a silky, lively, fruity medium body and a warming, charming, medium-length root beer float, brown spices, polished wood, and minerals finish. A delicious, sensual aged sipping rum.

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.
