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 eighteen years (non solera) in ex bourbon barrels in brick houses at the distillery, this is indeed a rum well worth pursuing. Traditionally harvested sugar cane and aged in oak for 18 years 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 fruit.
