Gold color. Aromas and flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, orange zest, and five spice with a satiny, crisp, dry medium body and a warming, complex, medium-long finish with notes of vanilla bean, banana pudding, bananas foster, and plum sauce. Rich and spicy, a great Rum for mixing into holiday cocktails or pairing with a cigar.

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.
