Alcohol: 40%
Amber color. Aromas and flavors of caramel and struck match, cinnamon sugar, dried dates and figs, and sticky toffee pudding with a round, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a long finish with notes of candied pecans and walnuts, dried dates and figs, vanilla, caramel, cocoa, and and baking spices. Earthy and nutty aromas mix with pleasant dried red fruits on the palate; a nice sipper that would also make a good Dark & Stormy.

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.
