Amber color. Aromas of artisan cola, bananas foster, nutmeg, and candied walnut with a round, bright, off-dry medium body and a warming, delightful, medium-length caramel-coconut sundae, toasted marshmallow, and chocolate-cherry almond bark finish. A silky, caramelly rum that is delicious sipped neat and will make flavorful cocktails.

Rum Aged more than 3 Years

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.
