Handcrafted in the Dominican Republic, Kirk and Sweeney Gran Reserva Superior 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. The rum is then aged in a variety of American and French oak barrels, with the distiller conducting various steps of dumping, blending and re-barreling through the years. The final blend is a selection of variously aged rums between 6 and 25 years, painstakingly hand selected, this is indeed a rum well worth pursuing.
- Aroma: The aroma presents subtle notes of dried fruits and sweet, toasted breads, along with a base toffee, fresh honey and caramelized sugar. You can also appreciate a faint hint of almonds and vanilla.
- Taste: This rum is as pleasantly complex as the nose would suggest, offering a rich evolution on the mouthfrom fresh, sweet sensations to dried fruits.
- Finish: Finishing off each decadent sip, you'll find endnotes that range from a distinct caramel, to sherry, to a well-balanced blend of almond and vanilla.
