Kirk and Sweeney were a wooden schooner, best known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the Northeast during the early years of Prohibition. Distilled using traditionally harvested sugar cane, this Kirk and Sweeney 18 Reserva rum was oak barreled to fully develop its profile – an enticing scent of sherry and molasses, followed by the taste of deep vanilla with a hint of caramel and dried fruits.
Eighteen years of aging and expert blending come to life with the first taste, revealing a deep vanilla flavor, followed by dried fruits, nutmeg, cinnamon spices and a hint of oak. Immensely smooth all the way through, this rum unwinds with a gently wavering sensation of oak, sherry and raisin.
This full-bodied rum delivers an intriguing range of aromas, from intense vanillas to faint notes of sherry and raisins–all built upon a notable undercurrent of roasted cane sugars.
