Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of vanilla banana ice cream, butterscotch, and lemon curd with a velvety, dry medium body and a long finish displaying overtones of banana vanilla cream pie, cinnamon, and butterscotch. A very well made Rum for the back bar that is versatile and will play nicely in any standard Rum application.

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.
