Gold color. Aromas of roasted chestnuts, terra cotta and clay, roasted bananas and sultanas, and painted pencil and rubber mat with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long vanilla pudding, honey roasted walnuts, and lacquered wood finish. A fruity-yet-earthy Rum that will pop in cocktails.

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.
