Product DescriptionHandcrafted in the Dominican Republic, Kirk and Sweeney Gran Reserva 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 5 and 20 years, painstakingly hand selected, this is indeed a rum well worth pursuing.
- Aroma: This full-bodied rum delivers an intriguing range of aromas, from intense vanillas to faint notes of sherry and raisins-all built upon a notable undercurrent of roasted cane sugars.
- Taste: Expert blending comes to life with the first taste, revealing a deep vanilla flavor, followed by dried fruits, nutmeg, cinnamon spices and a hint of oak.
- Finish: Immensely smooth all the way through, this rum unwinds with a gently wavering sensation of oak, sherry and raisin.
