Product Description

KIRK AND 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 re- named Chase and pressed into duty as a Coast Guard trainer, serving until the late 1940s when it was retired and salvaged. Aroma 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. Taste Initial taste reveals a nectar-sweet quality, leading to a weightier body that indicates sub- stantially aged rum thats serious in character but not overbearing. Light notes of vanilla and wood hit the palate transforming into an incredibly smooth offering. Finish Bold, ripe, and sweet vanilla flavors evolve near the end, providing a smooth, long and luxurious finish.
