Dark amber color. Aromas and flavors of dark butter roasted nuts and fruits, frosted caramel cake, and rich brown spices with a velvety, bright, dryish fat body and a smooth, intricate, very long finish with accents of spice cake, dried fruits, cherry cola, and creme brulee.

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.
