  • 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".

Tasting Notes

"Vanilla, light caramel, cocoa and dried fruit all jostle for attention on the nose; they continue to duke it out on the palate, with some restrained sweetness (likely from sherry barrels) wrapped in silky texture bringing a touch of decorum to the bout. In the end, it's a draw between sweet and dry, spicy and fruity."
