Copper color. Aromas and flavors of frosted fruit nut cake, frosted cardamom coffee cake, and sarsaparilla float with a satiny, bright, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, nuanced, very long finish with notes of vanilla meringue, macadamia gelato, and sweet spices. A wonderfully flavorful and inviting aged Rum that is a pleasure to sip and savor.

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.
