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

Sweet, smooth and a beautiful nose. One of my favourite rums.

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.

Rich caramel and butter toffee goodness. Far too smooth for it's price. $35 at Total Wine. It's hard to pony up for single malts when rum like this exists!

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.

Very good. Complex and balanced. Sweet, with a hint of a (good) burn. Taste of vanilla, almond and caramel. Nice long finish.

Úžasná vůně vanilky, pečeného cukroví. Není to doslazovaný rum, je sušší, ale nějaká sladkost tam je.V chuti jemná vanilka,skořice. Nádherná láhev.Za mě velmi dobrý rum.
