About

Kirk and Sweeney 12 Year

KIRK AND SWEENEY was a wooden schooner, best known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the Northeast during the early years of Prohibition.

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 substantially aged rum 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.
