Date Tasted:
Country: Bermuda
Alcohol: 40%
Clear amber color. Candied, buttery, woody aromas of toasted banana, coconut flakes, graham cracker, orange oil, walnut oil, burnt honey, brioche, and violets with a syrupy, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a smooth, brisk woody, coconut flakes- toasted, waxy, potpourri, dark chocolate, buttery, strawberry, thyme, baking spices, and nutty finish. A really beautiful dry dark Rum with just enough sweetness but then balanced with a light spice.

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.
