  • 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".

    Used American Oak Bourbon Barrels

Tasting Notes

"The aroma of the rum delivers notes of vanilla, rich banana, baking spice, and charred oak. The first sip ignites the mouth with a swirl of vanilla, caramel, alcohol, and ripe banana. As these flavors settle charred oak and roasted nuts (almond and peanut) manifest. As these flavors transition and begin to fade additional notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and oak tannins carry through in a long mellow finish."
