Kirk and Sweeney 18 Year Rum
Kirk and Sweeney // Dominican Republic
This rum is from the Dominican Republic and it is imported by 3 Badge in Sonoma, California. It's distilled from fresh sugar cane and aged for 'at least' 18 years in American oak. The name, Kirk & Sweeney, comes from a Prohibition-era schooner used to smuggle rum between the Caribbean to the United States.
Aged RumRum 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".

"This exemplifies well-aged rum. The nose shows brown sugar, vanilla, baking chocolate, coffee and integrated baking spice. The full body mouthfeel carries those flavors in deliberate segments adding leather and baked fruit. The finish is a simple fade of the flavors with coffee notes that linger with the baking spice."
