  • Aged Rum
    Rum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".

    ex-bourbon and ex-sherry

Tasting Notes

"Powerful estery explosion of over ripe tropical fruit defines this rum, which isn't quite the same on the palate, where it shows lean, well-balanced but only moderately expressive."
