Garnet color. Aromas and flavors of dark roasted nuts, blackstrap molasses, spiced coffee, and polished wood with a satiny, bone-dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, compelling, long finish with suggestions of banana chips, nut skin, straw and slate, and cigar wrapper. A bone-dry, mineral-laden dark Rum for serious 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.
