That's some good stuff
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.
I was lucky enough to sample the entire Kirk and Sweeney line at a rum tasting, and this gets top honors. Beautiful in the glass. Outstanding aroma, I could sit and nose this rum all night. Actually, that's a lie, I wouldn't be able resist sipping it. Vanilla, butterscotch, toffee, all the things I love in a rum. Smooth, mellow, so easy to drink. My preferred K & S rum. While I'd happily accept any of the three, I find the 23 a bit pricey in comparison, and this is just simply better than the 12 (which is already a pretty high bar!)
If someone offers you a glass of this, take it. Without hesitation. ☺️
Extremely disappointed by this one. A very harsh burn when straight which was very unexpected for an 18 year old, especially given the high rating on here. Mixed with coke it delivers a strange twang. Some may like it but not for me. Not worth the money, much better rums around this price point ie Diplomatic *edited my rating to a 6 from previous 4. It seemed to settle down a couple of weeks after opening and the burn dissappeared. Still has a slight odd taste that I'm not overly keen on though.
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.
