In the spirit of the rum-running schooner Kirk and Sweeney, this rum is well worth pursuing. Made with sugar cane and oak barreled, Kirk and Sweeney 12 Reserva shows a rich mahogany color, smoothly capturing a complex range of flavors, from earthy sugar cane and dried fruit to vanilla and toasted oak.
Aroma: 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.
Taste: Initial taste reveals a nectar-sweet quality, leading to a weightier body that's seriously in character but not overbearing. Light notes of vanilla and wood hit the palate transforming into an incredibly smooth offering.
Finish: Bold, ripe, and sweet vanilla flavors evolve near the end, providing a smooth, long and luxurious finish.
Alcohol: 80 Proof/ 40% Alc. by volume
