Reserva Ocho Rum

Category: Rum (Aged more than 3 Years)

Date Tasted:
Country: Puerto Rico

Amber color. Aromas and flavors of lacquered wood, dried fruits, caramelized nuts and plums, and lit cigar and leather with a silky, bright, off-dry medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length finish with impressions of flan, brown and pepper spices, and butter pecan gelato. A spicy, round and warming aged Rum that will be quite versatile.

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.
