With ever increasing price of my favorite "neat" rum a store owner suggested I try Kirk and Sweeney, I saw there 23 year rum was nearly a $100 cheaper than my favorite 21 year rum so thought I'd give it a try, I liked that but decided to give their 18 year rum and was pleasantly surprised to find it just as smooth and a touch sweeter, giving it an excellent taste. I no longer buy the 23 year and have replaced my favorite $150 neat 21 year rum with this delicious 18 year. An enjoyable rich caramel flavor with slight nutty undertones and a good oak aged flavor. I recommend highly!

It's ok. Nothing special. One time buy for me. The taste is about average. Didn't really have me craving for after each drink.

A little firey for an 18 year old. All I taste is oak even after letting it open up. A good change of pace but not my go to.

I gotta do 10/10! I purchased this one on recommendations, and I was really surprised by its slightly sugar taste, but it is OK even for drinkers who like dryer rums. Very nice aroma of vanilla and honey.

Při poměrně opatrné vůni rum rozvíjí svou kořeněnou chuť dominují ovocné bobule s trochou pepřové ostrosti notu až po určité době na jazyku, ale zůstává mírný. Musíte dát rumu čas, pak vás potěší lahodnými nuancemi a má dlouhotrvající účinek.

They state this one is an agricole from Dominican Republic. Well, it sure got some of that in it. Taste and nosewise it's the imagination takes me to a mix of agricole and molasses rum. Well thats just my imagination.
Nevertheless, this is a very special rum. Lot's of vanilla and oak with some dry tones. Very interesting. Im intrigued to buy the 23 yo.

Because I had a small tasting bottle. I'm kinda dissapointed. It wasn't a bad experience but I'm not amazed also. To short to be sure. A lot of vanilla and butterscotch at my nose. Very woody at the palate... Not very complex. I hope i will have a second chance with this one.
