The rum crafted in the Dominican Republic from raw sugarcane. After being distilled, the rum is aged for 23 years in American oak casks.
In the spirit of the rum-running schooner, Kirk and Sweeney, this rum is well worth pursuing.
As a result, it has a deep amber and iridescent copper color along with an aroma of dried fruits and sweet, toasted breads.
On the palate, initial hints of honey, toffee and caramelized sugar lead to subtler notes of almond and vanilla, which finally give way to bursts of figs, dried plums, caramel and sherry on the finish.
Handcrafted in the Dominican Republic, this rum adheres to the very strict regulations to be called “Dominican Rum”. The process begins with hand harvested, high quality sugarcane that is pure. The byproduct of the sugarcane, “Blackstrap Molasses” is then carefully fermented and distilled. Oak barreled in American oak, this is a rum well worth pursuing.
This limited edition bottling builds off of the success of Kirk and Sweeney’s flagship 23 year old rum, which earned a score of 95 points from Wine Enthusiast and was named one of the Top 50 Spirits of 2013.
Nose: Dried fruits and sweet, toasted breads, along with a base toffee, fresh honey and caramelized sugar, hint of almonds and vanilla.
