Copper color. Aromas of brown sugar, cola, sweet lemon, raisins, and ’nilla wafer with a slightly chewy, sweet full body and a warming, medium-length cherry candies and root beer finish. A rich and candied rum that packs a wallop of flavor; great for mixed drinks.

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.
