Bright gold color. Lively, toasty aromas and flavors of caramelized fruits and nuts, spiced green bananas, vanilla custard, and minerals with a supple, soft, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a warming, interesting, cheery dried tropical fruits, pepper, banana leaf, and cane stalk finish. A silky, gold rum with a nicely balanced range of cane, still, and barrel flavors.

Golden Rums, also known as Amber Rums, are generally medium-bodied. Most have spent several years aging in oak casks, which give them smooth, mellow palates.
