Date Tasted:
Country: Puerto Rico
Alcohol: 43%
Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of pencil shavings, dark caramelized nuts, bread pudding, and fleur de sel with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, medium-long finish with overtones of mocha and roasted coconut, sweet and peppery spices, cedar and leather, and cigar wrapper. A bold, oak-forward dark Rum that will play nicely in cocktails and with cigars.

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.
