Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Great oak and vanilla tastes/aromas with a hint of caramel, drink it with an ice cube or not, it's an excellent rum for nearly everything.
Mmm... Burnt sugar, brown butter and caramel right away. Drifting away quickly as well and leaving a semi-dry briny finish.
Got this for Christmas and everything about this was wonderful. The bottle itself is just a great piece of art
Excellent sipping rum. Easy on the palate, and super smooth. Can't wait to add this to my bar.
Love to get this at one of my local cigar bars. Pairs well with a variety of cigars! Beautiful color with lovely finish!
I first experienced the 12-year-old, which is a delightful rum, not too sweet, not too dry, vanilla overtones, delicious straight up or mixed. The 18 is just a lovely step up from the 12. The 18 is smoother and more refined, definitely a top five sipper in my book. I know everyone's palate is different, some like sweeter rums, some dryer but this one is definitely in my zone.
I am a fan. I have had the 23 and in my opinion, it is so close to the 18, that I have a hard time justifying the added expense.
I also note that this is not a Solera rum, so I assume that the aging is not fudged.
BANG ON Kirk and Sweeney, may our love affair continue.
I found this rum by accident. I was in Texas looking for some rum we can't get in Alberta. The store manager at Spec's is a fellow rum guy and has a bunch of high end runs stashed away in the back. He had the Hamilton rims I was looking for and when I asked him for another cool rum, he introduced me to this. Almost as good as my most favorite rum, also from the DR, Brugal Legends!
Great flavor with notes of vanilla mild spice warm and lingering
Ideal sipping rum. Neat or with a couple rox. Aroma of oak and vanilla.
This is a great sipping rum.. neat or with rocks.. either way cant go wrong with this one
Love all K&S rums, this is a little more smooth than the 12 YO and the vanilla and thats pretty good for Agricole rhum!!
This K&S great and the smell is absolutely amazing. Gotta find the K&S 23
A great tasting drink, maybe a little over priced but great smell, nice bottle and amazing smooth taste just by its self.
The only thing better is the 23 year. For those who like a smooth rum that isn’t too sweet. This rum comes highly recommended. Reasonably priced @ $38USD.
Probablemente el ron con el mejor balance que conozco. Delicioso, muy frutado y mucha dulzura. Suave en nariz y boca. Uno de mis favoritos, y la botella con su gruesa base me encanta. Un regalo dominicano.
Very good dry rum. In mouth flavours of honey, almonds, vanilla and sherry. Very smooth rum good for sipping for the whole evening.
I love this rum , it is sweet it has a vanilla caramel flavour and boy howdy it’s good
To expensive here in Canada but south of the border this price is very reasonable I’d pick up a case if I could bring it back and not get dinged , yep yep pick up a bottle and enjoy 😉👍👍
What an inviting aroma!
As always, I'm drinking my rum neat and this is another one that gently caresses your tongue.
It does feel like it's missing something in the finish to fully embrace me, but this is great quality rum.
A mid priced rum that hold it’s value. The nose is somewhat buttery with notes of cream brulee, vanilla seeds, caramel and perhaps a hint of cherry sauce and oak. Real nice.
The taste is medium bodied and semi dry with butterscotch and vanilla, finishing on well integrated and balanced tobacco leaves and oak that stays pleasently in the mouth for a while.
It’s very nice but not very adventurous.
Fantastic on the nose, with the vanilla scent coming through. Front end heat gives way to a very smooth sipper. I recommend letting your bottle air out a bit after the first decorking. I left the cork off for about a half hour and then poured and enjoyed with a single ice cube which really allowed for the deeper flavors to come out. Really a quality rum. I personally like the 23 year old better because the flavors are more even and the slight taste of oak is slightly more pronounced, but I think it’s a matter of preference. I DID throw back half a bottle while at a recent gathering friends, so I guess that says something. Buy with confidence.
This is truly a great rum i would recommend to any rum enthusiast. Just know this rum is on the sweeter side and the long aging has brought complexity to the finish. To me, this rum doesn’t have much of an oak note from aging. Enjoy.
Solid, typically Dominican rum. Good value at £40 a bottle. Better than the 12, not quite as good as the 23. Get a bottle.
This 18 is delicious with a great aroma. It's a bit sweeter than I normally like. I will enjoy buying this again and will try the 23 year as well.. the 12 year was good too.
