Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of baked pear and raspberry nougat, clover honey soaked baked dates, bananas foster, and menthol and cedar with a velvety, dryish medium-to-full body and a long finish with suggestions of bananas foster, baked apple and sweet spices, vanilla cream, and claro tobacco leaf. Intensely sweet baked fruit flavors and aromas make for a nice sipper and an even nicer mixer.

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.
