"From the Distillery: 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 1940’s when it was retired and salvaged."

 

Details

Wine Enthusiast: 95 Points

Named for a wooden schooner famed for smuggling rum during Prohibition, this amber rum has a relatively light feel for a spirit aged a full 12 years. Flavors and aromas run to hazelnut, cookie dough, brown sugar and vanilla, pepped up with dark chocolate and espresso. Presented in a rotund “onion” bottle modeled after an 18th-century design.

Beverage Testing Institute: 89 Points

Rich copper color. Aromas of nut brittle, mocha, and brown spices with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a long, roasted coconut and banana creme brulee accented finish. A very nice sipper or mixing rum.
