About this deal

The look and color is nice with a reddish mahogany glow in the bottle and a light yellowish amber in the glass.

It smells like the sweetness could wisp you away to the Caribbean, only to be shot down at the port of flavour.

I'm wondering whether it has been spiced - it's on the shelves next to the other one that seems to be popular (and which I find equally nasty) Don Papa.I let it sit for about 5 minutes before smelling and there was a strong presence of vanilla, caramel, sugar and oak. A wonderful sipper to be enjoyed neat or over ice, this rum can also be added to a variety of adventurous cocktails. Having spent 23 years in the barrel, this rum is as pleasantly complex as the nose and ageing would suggest, offering a rich evolution on the mouth–from fresh, sweet sensations to dried fruits. Expert blending comes to life with the first taste, revealing a deep vanilla flavour, followed by dried fruits, nutmeg, cinnamon spices and a hint of oak. Made with sugar cane and aged in oak barrels for 12 years, Kirk and Sweeney shows a rich mahogany colour, smoothly capturing a complex range of flavours, from earthy sugar cane and dried fruit to vanilla and toasted oak.

This distillery is now one of the largest in the Dominican Republic and has a rich family heritage going back over 100 years.It tastes like an agricole, albeit an exceptional one, and tastes at least as good as the far more expensive Clement XO (imho). I tried it again last night and thought it was actually quite nasty and what I was going to do with it! However, my rum cupboard is quite full, and for the first time ever, I'm half tempted to pour it down the sink (though I won't end up doing that, more than likely I'll try and give it away). I liked the taste as it wasn't quite as sweet as it smelled, and I prefer dry and oak flavors in my liquors and wine, which this had quickly, but it dispersed even quicker. The schooner was subsequently renamed “Chase” and pressed into duty as a Coast Guard trainer, serving until the late 1940’s when it was retired and salvaged.
