in a tasting round of 15 people the average was a nine. A rum, everybody would like to have in his bar at home. Smooth, fruity long lovely finish. up to 18 years old dom rep rums. in the mouth full of fruit. especially vanilla, sherry, dry fruits and raisin. not a big difference to the 23 year old one.

Not strong, smooth and a taste of chocolat. I like it. Very good Rum. Price and Quality is excellent.

One of my favourites, strong but also smooth in the finish, vanilla and a little coffee taste with a sweet smell

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.

Ideal sipping rum. Neat or with a couple rox. Aroma of oak and vanilla.

I keep this one and Pampero next to each other. Some days I like Pampero better, some days this one. Both are very similar in flavor profile, notes of tobacco, vanilla, oak and caramel. Fantastic stuff.

Kirk & Sweeney 12 year rum was one of the earlier premium rums I sampled on RumRatings. Less than a month after that I found a bottle of K&S 23 and rated it as well. Since then I've educated myself somewhat on rums and have K&S as one of my favorite brands. All three in the K&S line get a "9" from me. This one is simply delicious. Wonderful aroma. Beautiful amber color. And a outstanding flavor with vanilla, toffee, and even a butteriness to it. Very, very smooth with no harsh burn. Just a mellow warmth with oak tones that add no bitterness.

One day...perhaps soon...I'm going to line all three up and sip a little of each in order (12, 18, 23) just to see the differences between them. I'll try to remember to add to my reviews what I find. IMHO you cannot go wrong with any of the K&S rums.

Carmel and vanilla. Letting it sit for a bit mellows the flavor. No harsh tones.
