A delicious sipper, wonderfully complex yet smooth and not overly sweet. A fantastic value for the price.

Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Dominikánská republika
Aroma: Kandované ovoce, cedr, včelí plástve, medová sladkost, broušená kůže. (84 b)
Chuť: Oproti vůni je na jazyku vcelku suchý, hřebíček, cedrové dřevo, v dochuti pak i mírná hořčinka. (80 b)
Body: 82/100
Shrnutí: Mám lahev a nejsem z ní kdoví jak nadšený, na mě už dost suchý, osmnáctiletá verze byla výrazně lepší.

Nice especially in a old fashioned but it does remind me of bourbon anyway with lost of wood spiciness but didn’t get much sweetness from it. Wasn’t wowed by it

I prepared myself not to like this rum. I was pleasantly surprised when I received it as a gift and enjoyed with a large ice cube. This very quaffable rum has spicy notes up front, but mellows into vanilla and toffee on the back. I really like it. Looking forward to trying the older varieties.

I bought 2 bottles of Kirk and Sweeney a few weeks ago when I saw at the upscale grocer on discount. A bottle of the 12 year ($29) and a bottle of the 23 year ($35). This 12 year decants well in about 10-20 minutes. You will get a strong and flavorful aroma. One tasting was neat. Neat is smooth, but not super smooth and it has a firm burn - not as strong as many others though. The flavors do make you want more (or maybe I like to drink), vanilla, honey, a little oak, a hint of cocoa and berries. I tried again with an big ice cube. Better as I like the dilution. Again with an ice cube and a lime wedge. Decent mix, but not an ideal match. Finally, decanted with a pinch of organic Sugar in the Raw and added an ice cube. That's the ticket.

For the flavour I'd rate it around a 7, but when price and presentation are factored in it has to have an 8. One thing I'm not so fond of is really sweet rums with little burn, so if you're after a good, strong flavour for a good price I highly recommend this!

Great rum at a fantastic price, one that I always want to have on my shelf

This was just okay as a sipper, I ended up mixing it. It has a strong woody sweet smell and similar taste. Not my favorite.

Balanced not too sweet, great rum (wanted the 23 yo but impossible to source).
My go to is Appleton 12yo

I really enjoy the 23 yr old K&S and a friend bought me the 12 yr old to try. Great color and smell and first taste is packed with flavors of vanilla and caramel. But the harsh alcohol bites through to ruin the ending. Still not a bad run and will do in a pinch. Worth the price but it’s older cousin is much better.
