Toffee is the keynote, medium body, easy to drink, far from the classic sherry oak Spanish style Dominican rum. A very pleasant surprise

Huge disappointment, and better choices out there for the price. Very strong taste and smell of vanilla, so much so that I wonder if this is artificially flavored - like dumping a small bottle of vanilla essence into a bland rum. I can't believe that much vanilla can develop naturally from aging in a barrel, with pretty much no other flavors developing at the same time.
Not much else apart from the vanilla taste and smell. The only positive is that it doesn't have too much burn. Useless as a mixer too, because the smell of vanilla is overpowering.

Quite fine, bit vanilla and oaks barrel wooden taste, not as the older buddy of this family, but well all right for private sipping.

Great in a tiki drink and tasty to sip on. Will have to review it more in depth after more analysis.

This is my third example of K&S. 18yo, 23yo and now 12. They are in perfect proportion of taste per age. I'm just wondering what is the price per age of everyone?
So, the taste/$ is the best for the grandfather )
Anyway, all of them are highly recommended!

There is to much burn and not good flavour, it very basic. Would not recommend

I bought this from a local store, mostly out of excitement that there was finally something different. Looks nice, tastes fine, overpriced in relation to similar quality rum.

But I have enjoyed a few daiquiris with this at a local favorite spot, lounging under live oaks.
I can’t speak to it on its own, but with that simple & classic bit of mixing, it’s provided me with some pleasant memories

This rum has a great smell when first opening it. After first taste theres a lot going on, but its not horrible, not harsh, and not funky. But there is a lot of flavors happening. I could taste a bit of oak, and maybe a hint of vanilla. Tastes fresh and clean with a smooth finish.

The 12 gives you hints of vanilla & toffee with a heavy Clove finish that is slightly bitter and very dry. Definitely Not a sweet rum. Has a slight burn to it. As a rock melts and it airs out, it definitely mellows out, but still leaves the back of your throat with a heavy warming sensation. I’ve had better and had worst. Just another mid grade rum that’s about $5 overpriced.

A nice tasting rum with plenty of flavour. A bit on the sweet side, so those who prefer less sweet tasting rums will probably not like this as much but I realy enjoy it. Worth the 8 stars for sure.
