96pts Wine Enthusiast
Wine Enthusiast: "Complex, delicious and ideal as a sipping rum. The deep aroma suggests caramel, toffee and oak. The velvety-soft palate shows toffee, fudge, cocoa and oloroso Sherry, drying out the long finish with espresso, leather, clove and black pepper." Jun 2017

Winery"Aroma: The aroma presents subtle notes of dried fruits and sweet, toasted breads, along with a base toffee, fresh honey and caramelized sugar. You can also appreciate a faint hint of almonds and vanilla. Taste: Having spent 23 years in the barrel, this rum is as pleasantly complex as the nose and aging would suggest, offering a rich evolution on the mouth–from fresh, sweet sensations to dried fruits. Finish: Finishing off each decadent sip, you’ll find endnotes that range from a distinct caramel, to sherry, to a well-balanced blend of almond and vanilla."

 

Kirk & Sweeney Facts: "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 subse- quently renamed “Chase” and pressed into duty as a Coast Guard trainer, serving until the late 1940’s when it was retired and salvaged."
