Kirk & Sweeney 23 Year Old Rum

$143.99

Kirk and Sweeney 23 Year Old Rum is a rum crafted in the Dominican Republic from raw sugarcane. After being distilled, the rum is aged for 23 years in American oak casks. As a result, it has a deep amber and iridescent copper color along with an aroma of dried fruits and sweet, toasted breads. On the palate, initial hints of honey, toffee and caramelized sugar lead to subtler notes of almond and vanilla, which finally give way to bursts of figs, dried plums, caramel and sherry on the finish.

Description

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. Just before it entered the territorial waters of the United States, the schooner would drop anchor and sell the rum to smaller boats which would come up alongside the Kirk and Sweeney. The smaller boats, which were faster and more maneuverable than the boats in the Coast Guard’s fleet, would smuggle the rum ashore.

As other boats followed suit, the edge of U.S. jurisdiction — the line where boats like the Kirk and Sweeney dropped anchor — became known as the “Rum Line” and the row of ships waiting to sell rum on the Rum Line were said to be anchored on “Rum Row.”
