Description

Kirk & Sweeney was a wooden schooner, best known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the Northeast during the early years of Prohibition. In 1924, it was seized off the coast of New York with a massive amount of rum aboard. The schooner was subsequently renamed “Chase” and pressed into duty as a Coast Guard trainer, serving until the late 1940’s when it was retired and salvaged.

Handcrafted in the Dominican Republic, this rum adheres to the very strict regulations to be called “Dominican Rum”. The process begins with hand harvested, high quality sugarcane that is pure. The byproduct of the sugarcane, “Blackstrap Molasses” is then carefully ferment- ed and distilled. The average ageing of rum in the Caribbean is generally two years, Kirk and Sweeney is the rare exception.

Aged twelve years (non solera) in ex French Oak wine barrels in brick houses at the distillery, this is indeed a rum well worth pursuing. Kirk & Sweeney shows a rich mahogany colour, smoothly capturing a complex range of flavours, from earthy sugar cane and dried fruit to vanilla and toasted oak.
