Dark amber color. Aromas and flavors of burnt caramel, bananas foster, molasses, and salted creme brulee with a velvety, dry medium body and a medium finish with shades of burnt sugar, clove and toffee, oak extract, and vanilla. A standard dark Rum for the speed rack; an easy grab for making Cuba Libres.

Rum Aged 3 years or less

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.
