About this deal

Thanks to the years of expertise amassed by the Bermúdez distillery and the standards upheld at every production stage, this brand has become synonymous with excellence worldwide. 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).

Bold, ripe, and sweet vanilla avors evolve near the end, providing a smooth, long and luxurious nish. At first sip, flavors of toasted oak and vanilla delight the senses with hints of raisin and sherry, built upon layers of spice and sweet dried fruits. Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously.

A wonderful sipper to be enjoyed neat or over ice, this rum can also be added to a variety of adventurous cocktails.

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.Its name comes from a famous schooner known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the United States during the prohibition era. The taste profile is also complemented by raisin notes, toasted caramel, almond, and oak, which combine to create a truly unique and balanced flavour experience.

Playing off the concept of global navigation, an antique nautical map of the main rum smuggling route is silkscreened around the circumference of the bottle. 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. Bold, ripe, and sweet vanilla flavors evolve near the end, providing a smooth, long and luxurious finish.This choice is symbolic, paying tribute to the adventurous and free spirit of pioneers seeking the best flavors for their products.

I don't claim to be an expert, I just know what I like and don't, and know everyone tastes and smells things differently and has their own likes, dislikes and preferences when it comes to rum. The average ageing of rum in the Caribbean is generally two years, Kirk and Sweeney is the rare exception.

This Reserva expression packs lots of flavour within the snazzy round bottle, with notes of vanilla and dried fruits aplenty. The Bermúdez distillery indeed uses time-tested ancestral methods to extract the best from ingredients and produce a liquor of unparalleled quality, all while minimizing their ecological footprint. Many aspects of the brand hark back to the 1920s, honouring and as a tribute to the risk so many were willing to take for a good taste of rum during that time. Kirk and sweeney was a wooden schooner, best known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the Northeast during the early years of Prohibition.
