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. Its name comes from a famous schooner known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the United States during the prohibition era. Content on this site is not intended to substitute for advice given by medical practitioner, pharmacist, or other licensed health-care professional. I liked the taste as it wasn't quite as sweet as it smelled, and I prefer dry and oak flavors in my liquors and wine, which this had quickly, but it dispersed even quicker. This deep mahogany coloured 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.

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. Twenty three years spent in American Oak barrels, housed in brick at the distillery, has lent every bottle a touch of dried fruit, sherry and honey. I've been drinking rum for over 40 years and find this to be one of the better sipping rums, smooth flavoursome and without the devastation of throat burn that the rougher end of the bunch induce, it is after all meant to be a pleasure and not an endurance. Top with freshly grated nutmeg, add orange moon standing up inside the glass, then add a pineapple wedge to the glass and serve.

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.

Upon opening the bottle, you'll be greeted with aromas of vanilla, sherry-soaked raisins, and earthy sugar cane undertones. However, my rum cupboard is quite full, and for the first time ever, I'm half tempted to pour it down the sink (though I won't end up doing that, more than likely I'll try and give it away).
