The bargain of a lifetime.

Let’s be clear. Sonoma County in California is first and foremost wine country. August Sebastiani, the president of 3 Badge Beverages, is a fourth-generation member of one of its oldest wine families. Based in this fertile valley along the rugged Pacific coastline, the company, you guessed it – produces wine. Lately, they’ve broadened their portfolio to spirits as well. Happy times.

Their commitment to craftsmanship and a deep connection to the family history transcend the make of the drink. The company offices are held in the same fire station Sebastiani’s grandfather helped build and where he volunteered. Their spirits division named Mixology includes the Rum brand Kirk and Sweeney, named after the wooden schooner best known for smuggling Rum from the Caribbean to the United States during Prohibition.

To call Kirk and Sweeney 18 Year Old Rum a treasure is an understatement. The Rum is crafted in the Dominican Republic from raw sugarcane and aged for 18 years in American oak casks. The result is a work of art in form and substance. What’s that supposed to mean? Well, the unique bottle, raised cork in a peculiarly shaped low-set jug, with the imprinted rum smuggling route of our favorite hooch vessel, is a lovely addition to any mantelpiece. But it’s even more at home in your bar, that’s for sure.

There’s cargo inside that’s even more alluring than the bottle itself. Simply delicious, with outstanding flavor and a wonderful aroma. So, so smooth… Everything you could possibly want in a premium Rum. Go on, find a better well-aged Rum at this price point. We dare you.

Nice aroma and smooth sipper. Vanilla notes with a slight spice finish.

Very nice nose, smooth and great finish!
Henry
Henry,
This rum is delicious and smooth as can be. I like it best straight, as mixing detracts from the full enjoyment of this very excellent libation.
Loren
Loren,
The rum is not bad. Great decanter.
Terry
Terry,
My new favorite. Rich molasses and vanilla up front with a faint spicy finish. Best served neat with a medium bodied cigar. Superb!
Mark
Mark,
While I can't tell you what aroma is what it does have a nice one. I think the flavors go well and compliment the flavors of Dr. Pepper as opposed to Coca Cola. Or it's nice just by itself.
Roy

Christopher
Christopher,
Very smooth. Where I had bought this at, it was a better value than the 12 year old because it was only $5 more. This is what their 12 year old should have been, but isn't.
