    Default Who Makes This Rum?

    I had a guest send these pics of some rum he recently bought for a collection.

    I had never heard of it: Kirk & Sweeny. The bottle says from Santiago.

    But the outstanding attributes are he bought 12, 18 and 23 y.o. rum.

    Has anyone heard of it, or knows who makes it? I am thinking private label, but would love to find some.

    It’s $138.99 in Canada :0 ... for 23 yr old
    https://craftcellars.ca/product/kirk...-year-old-rum/

    Kirk and Sweeney 23 Year Old Rum is a rum crafted in the Dominican Republic from raw sugarcane. After being distilled, the rum is aged for 23 years in American oak casks. As a result, it has a deep amber and iridescent copper color along with an aroma of dried fruits and sweet, toasted breads. On the palate, initial hints of honey, toffee and caramelized sugar lead to subtler notes of almond and vanilla, which finally give way to bursts of figs, dried plums, caramel and sherry on the finish.
