For some reason, I never noticed that that was the 12-year Kirk & Sweeney before today. I prefer the 12-year myself too. The 18- and 24-year Kirk & Sweeney rums are great, but I think the 12-year has a sort of, for lack of better word, "sharpness" in taste that the older ones don't have.
When I lived closer to the Interstate was easy to go across the border into NH and shop the nicer big ass booze stores they have on the interstate. Now I have to go to the smaller sketchier ones in say Scummersworth. Which don't have the depth of selection like the fancier ones on the Interstate.
I used to get the 10 year old (s-s-s-s-s-ure) right up until it hit like $50... and I have tried the 18 year old... but not the other two.
