Brilliant mahogany color. Roasted aromas and flavors of black strap molasses, baking chocolate, instant coffee crystals, and roasted nuts with a silky, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length finish with accents of coffee ice cream finish. A classically styled old school dark rum that will shine in cocktails.

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.
