Amber color. Aromas and flavors of cinnamon and allspice, ligero tobacco, cedar and dried heather, and dark chocolate with a velvety, dryish medium body and a medium-to-long finish evoking accents of cinnamon, caramel and chocolate coconut, walnut, pecan, and mushrooms, polished oak, and old leather and umami like rancio. A straight forward, well-aged Rum with enough depth to impress experienced drinkers.

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.
