Gold color. Aromas and flavors of warm pencil eraser and shavings, burnt sugar and mace, and hint of rubber cement with a supple, dryish full body and a warming, interesting, long finish with notes of salted butter roasted nuts, grass and herbs, green plantain, and pepper. A bold, penetrating golden Rum that will add a classy kick to cocktails.

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.
