I bought a bottle for $28 and would be willing to spend more after tasting this. Caramel, vanilla, and oak flavors with no burn. Good looking bottle also.
Love the branding first class look about it
Taste is very nice 40 % ABV
Cost £30 Great to give as a gift , Looks a cut above the retail shelf . only had the 12 year so far

I own a bottle and only rate what I have bought
Tento rum jsem ochutnal o Vánocích u známého. Jeho žádná vůně mne překvapila. Shodli jsme se se známým, že na rozdíl jiných rumů, které jsme ten den pili, jsme u tohoto vzorku necítili žádnou vůni. Chuť již byla docela dobrá, mírně nasládlý příjemně pitelný rum. Celkově tedy zklamání, škoda, možná někdy příště.
Now this is a funny one for me i am fairly new to drinking rum and have never spoken-to an experienced rum drinker . The smell to me there is no obvious smells maybe a bit of oak and coffee but nothing clear to me. The taste just ok again with nothing really jumping out on the flavours quite strong alcohol taste with a bit of burn but does taste nice on the front of the tongue. I find if i drink to big a mouth full it kills me palette but yet i do like this rum i have now had 6 bottles over 2 years . Now for what i like most this is a really relaxing drink this is a really chilled drink similar effect red wine does to some people . I find the best way to drink this rum is poor a decent measure and put a good series on or a film sit back an chill and you find yourself getting so focused and into the movie its great really relaxing i would not drink this at a party really nice chill out drink
In a word, yuck! Way too sweet. It's ok in a cocktail, but there are better choices that are more affordable. Cool backstory, cool bottle, but lousy rum.
Goldbraun mit mittleren Schlieren im Glas.
In der Nase zurückhaltend, sehr dezent nach Karamell.
Am Gaumen eine unerwartete Geschmacksverstärkung mit verschiedenen Nuancen. Beim ersten Schluck zeigt sich noch ein etwas scharfer alkoholischer Eindruck. Dann dezente Süße, feine Würze, etwas Holz, etwas Frucht, Butterscotch.
Mittlerer Körper, rund und ausgewogen.
Ein guter Sipper zu einem angemessenen Preis, aber für mich knapp an der 8 vorbei.
In my opinion it’s almost flawless. It’s uniquely flavoured. Full of the perfect blend of spice. Not overwhelming and leaves you wanting more after every sip. The only thing that could make it better is smoothing out the aftertaste.
From the get go it's obvious this is sweetened after distillation. But Kirk & Sweeney is still an enjoyable rum experience either as a casual sipper or in a simple cocktail like a daiquiri or a planter's punch. Palate is sweet with hints of almond, biscuit and heavy molasses. Aroma is has a *hint* of burning caramel. All in all not a regrettable purchase.
This rum is not particularly sweet, has a good color, a bit of a burn on the medium finish but not harsh. Overall, quite drinkable neat but there is a slightly off flavor that I am not good enough to identify. It has a slight chemical taste - may be alcohol and charred oak, I suppose. Nice bottle as well.
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.
