Kirk and Sweeney is named for a wooden schooner that was notoriously used to smuggle rum up the coast, from the Caribbean, during the Prohibition era. This rum is handcrafted in the Dominican Republic and follows a strict set of regulations to ensure quality, blending throughout the years to give a final product that can be used in cocktails but can also be easily enjoyed on its own.

Tasting Notes

From the distillery: This deep mahogany colored rum presents a sweet aroma balanced heavily toward cane honey, with earthy sugar cane undertones, along with a hint of vanilla, luscious toasted oak, caramel and dried fruits. Initial taste reveals a nectar-sweet quality, leading to a weightier body that’s serious in character but not overbearing. Light notes of vanilla and wood hit the palate transforming into an incredibly smooth offering. Bold, ripe, and sweet vanilla flavors evolve near the end, providing a smooth, long and luxurious finish.

Method

The process begins with high-quality sugarcane that is processed for fermentation and distillation.The rum is then aged in a variety of American and French oak barrels, with the distiller conducting various steps of dumping, blending, and re-barreling through the years. The final blends are a selection of variously aged rums, painstakingly hand selected for a rum well worth pursuing.

Our Thoughts

This rum smells like fresh baked cookies! Burnt sugar, cookie dough and chocolate with some toasted oak notes (coconut and vanilla coming through). Come to think of it, this rum smells quite a bit like a Vanilla Coke.

In the mouth it is medium-bodied and creamy with butterscotch and cola. Perfectly balanced with a hint of sweetness that doesn’t come across cloying.
