About Kirk and Sweeney Gran Reserva Superior Rum

Kirk and Sweeney Gran Reserva Superior 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.

This limited edition bottling builds off of the success of Kirk and Sweeney’s flagship 23 year old rum, which earned a score of 95 points from Wine Enthusiast and was named one of the Top 50 Spirits of 2013.

About Kirk And Sweeney

"Kirk and Sweeney was the name of a wooden schooner 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 that would come up alongside. The smaller boats, which were faster and more maneuverable than the Coast Guard's fleet boats, 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 was said to be anchored on "Rum Row."

About Rum

Rum history allegedly started in the Carribiens in the 17th century when they started to ferment and distill molasses, a byproduct of sugar production. Most of the Rum is aged in oak or ex-wine casks, giving its color and flavor.


We distinguish between 4 different Rum categories, where white or unaged rum is mainly used in cocktails, while dark, spiced, and añejo (aged) rum are mostly enjoyed neat.

The enticing nose greets with aromas of mocha latte, coffee beans coated in toffee, and tangerine peel. The palate begins with tasty nougat notes and fruity flavors of peach, apricot, and spicy cinnamon. Spiciness is balanced by sweet sherry and cedar tones that linger long after the smooth finish.
