Date Tasted:

Golden yellow color. Aromas and flavors of grilled bananas, chocolate nuts and citrus peels, pumice, and artichoke heart with a silky, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a warming, stimulating, medium-long finish with impressions of mango chutney, pepper, and hint of diesel. A savory, artisanal Rum with a nice sense of place; rock with sophisticated cocktails or cigars.

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.
