Get ready for summer with a complex and refreshing Painkiller cocktail from Kirk and Sweeney Dominican Rum.

The Dominican based rum is named after the Kirk and Sweeney wooden schooner, a ship that smuggled rum from the Caribbean into the Northern United States during the early years of prohibition. The spirit is carefully crafted from sugarcane and aged in oak barrels resulting in a deep mahogany liquid.

When working with the Reserva, hints of vanilla, toasted oak, dried fruit, and caramel great the nose with earthy undertones of sugar cane and honey. On the palate expect a nectary sweetness that transitions to a full-bodied liquid with hints of vanilla and wood. While fantastic alone, Reserva makes for an excellent and dynamic cocktail.
