About this deal

Finishing off each decadent sip, you’ll have endnotes that range from a distinct caramel, to sherry, to a well-balanced blend of almond and vanilla. This full-bodied rum delivers an intriguing range of aromas, from intense vanillas to faint notes of sherry and raisins–all built upon a notable undercurrent of roasted cane sugars. It offers a bit of vanilla, dark chocolate and dark berries, but is dominated by somewhat bitter oaky notes.

Kirk and Sweeney was the name of a wooden schooner that was best known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the United States during Prohibition," says August Sebastiani, President of 35 Maple Street Distillery. 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. Anyway the 12 year reserva is a decent but not great rum hint of citrus some alcohol scent and burn. Our packaging meet all the requirements of many partner carriers, especially for international carriers.Immensely smooth all the way through, this rum unwinds with a gently wavering sensation of oak, sherry and raisin. Top with freshly grated nutmeg, add orange moon standing up inside the glass, then add a pineapple wedge to the glass and serve. Expert blending comes to life with rums aged between 5 and 20 years to fully develop the enticing and immensely smooth Gran Reserva profile. Some mention that it has a great flavour, while others say that it tastes harsh and like cheap pure alcohol. This rum has its name from a sailing ship named 'Kirk and Sweeney' which served as a smuggling ship for rum between the Caribbean and the northeast of the USA in the early times of prohibition.

Having spent 23 years in the barrel, this rum is as pleasantly complex as the nose and ageing would suggest, offering a rich evolution on the mouth–from fresh, sweet sensations to dried fruits.However based upon how good the 12 year it, I expect the 23 year rum to be, at least, equally as good. Gone is the unctuous rich caramely nose, to be replaced by one which is more astringent with hints of what reminds me of oranges. Its name comes from a famous schooner known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the United States during the prohibition era.

In the event of any safety concerns or for any other information about a product please carefully read any instructions provided on the label or packaging and contact the manufacturer. The look and color is nice with a reddish mahogany glow in the bottle and a light yellowish amber in the glass. The aroma of this rum is a delicate balance of dried fruits, sweet toasted breads, toffee, honey, and caramelised sugar, with faint notes of sherry and raisins. The Gran Reserva: with its 18 years of maturation, this rum reveals irresistible notes of cocoa, toffee, and tobacco, beautifully combined with its rich mouthfeel and supreme smoothness.NID cookie, set by Google, is used for advertising purposes; to limit the number of times the user sees an ad, to mute unwanted ads, and to measure the effectiveness of ads.
