Proof66 Notes

Kirk and Sweeney 23yr rum is produced in the Dominican Republic and aged for 23 years in American White oak prior to bottling... a venerable age and one of the oldest spirits in any class available for the general market. The name comes from the schooner that was known to smuggle rum during the (absurd and misguided) Prohibition period.

I was browsing the liquor store and saw this bottle along with the 18 year and the 12 year. The 18 was $39.99 and the 23 was $44.99, so I figured that there's no reason to not go with the 23. The bottle looks great, but it does require two hands to pour because it's awkward and heavy (I certainly wouldn't want to drop it!). The color of the rum is very nice; I love those dark copper colored liquors, as long as they're not artificially colored. The aroma is very sweet; I get heavy vanilla, sugar cookie dough, and a hint of toffee and oak. The palate is similar, but the oak is more prominent and there's also a little leather in there too. Overall I enjoy the rum and I'm glad I bought it (I mean 23 years for 45 bucks right!?), but I still think the Zacapa 23 is a good sized step above this one.
