Kirk & Sweeney 23 Year Old Rum (700ml)
Collector's note: the 23 year old expression has been discontinued and will be replaced by the new, non-age stated 'Gran Reserva Superior'.
Tasting note: Deep copper. Densely packed bouquet is redolent of sticky date pudding, vanilla wafer, maple syrup and nougat chocolate. Silky, elegant and deftly balanced with the sweetness in check and luxurious flavours of dates, sponge cake, nougat and vanilla. Medium long. A rich and skilfully poised Grandfather rum for quiet sipping. 40% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... Fantastic aged rum, everything that you'd expect. The nose shows caramel, vanilla, baking spice, dried fruit, chocolate, honey and toffee weave into a harmonious balance. The elegant mouthfeel gracefully displays these flavors in a quiet reveal and build into richer tones of leather and baked fruit. The finish is a simple fade of the flavors with coffee notes that linger with the baking spice. 92 points - distiller.com
