  • 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

"Sipping the rum delivers a sweet caramelized vanilla forward flavor that is grounded by the wood tannins, dark cocoa, and carbon mineral notes. The soft cherry notes from the aroma returns briefly as the sweet and earthier profiles fight for dominance. The sweetness eventually wins out as the rum fades into a lingering dry finish."
