Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Bought this when the owner of a bar recommended it to me. Its actually a little bit smoother than the 23 year. Sweet but not too much and tons of flavor.
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.
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.
I had not heard of this brand, bought it on a whim. Glad I did, oh so glad I did.
It has a rich aroma that hits you with sugar and tobacco, but the flavor is completely different than what the nose makes you think. Cocoa explosion in the mouth with a subtle finish that starts with nutmeg and spice and tails off on molasses notes. Just a smidge on the dry side on the finish, which is why I give it an 8 instead of a 9 personally.
Overall a great, great rum that is a definite drinker.
The old intense wood with apricot taste from the 12 is missing. I particularly liked that.
That's why I prefer the 12 years old.
Smell: some barrel, a hint of vanilla, some caramel, sherry.
Taste: dry fruit, some vanilla, some caramel, some oak, bitterness. Aftertaste of sherry.
A very nice aroma of toffee, vanilla and a little bit of oak. A really great aroma.
This rum is very smooth. In mouth you get vanilla and toffee. This rum is not too sweet and not too dry, great balance. The aftertaste is short with a little bit of oak and mild spice.
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 😉👍👍
Having had tasted all three bottles, I must say none have disappointed me. Whatever the price I shall pay it. I have not been able to purchase K&S at the duty free stores at the Punta Cana airport and no one their seems to have heard of it. Any reason? I am able to purchase it at my local enteco on long island thank god.
Rich honey, amber color. Delicate slightly flowery nose.
I love the mouth feel of this rum. It's so well balanced between a bit of sweetness and just the right amount of spice. Nice long finish (slightly spicy) with just a tinge of alcohol. I really like this rum a lot.
Smooth and good balance, not too heavy. It is good caramel, vanilla, buttercake with clove flavor.
There is only one problem. Cap is hard to open and close with only cork.This is not wine....
Nevím jak jsou na tom ostatní ročníky, ale 18y mi přijde málo zajímavý. Není to špatný rum. Podání vanilky je lepší než u Chiután 12y, který trpí na podivnou dochuť. U Kirka je dochut víc zakulacená a odchází přes trochu nakyslé ovocné dřívko, ale jen decentně. Zatím ale asi nejlépe podaná vanilka v rumu.
Impressive bottle, darker colour of rum
nice smell with vanilla and butterscotch
taste is sweet, at first moment vanilla, later old wooden taste. very interesting,
old rum ( not solera method) with specific taste....
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.
One of the best rums I have tried so far. Definitely a sipper, don't you dare mix it. Very elegant and smooth, you will definitely taste the vanilla.
