Really enjoyable taste. Smooth and a little sweet. This will be a repeat in the future.

Hells bells! This be the best of the three Kirk & Sweeney rums I've had! The 12-year was great, the 18-year was even better, but the 23-year beats the two of them! She smells sweet, almost distractingly so, but that comes with hints of vanilla, smoke, cola, and unless I am mistook, dried fruits. On the tongue, she be SMOOTH with lots of vanilla. Not too sweet - not as sweet as she smells - but not dry. Aye, she have a great mouthfeel, and there be zero burn goin' down the hatch. On the finish, there be a hint of grassiness, and at the very end, just a tiny hint of the dried fruits. This be an outstandin' sippin' rum not to be mixed with anythin'. She be a bit on the pricey side, but she be worth every penny. Let me perish and rot if I be lyin'! arrgh!

That much better than the 18 yr. Worth the extra bucks.

Smooth with complex lingering flavour. You can taste the barrel in this sweet rum. Definitely worth trying if you've never tried it, but for the price I am not sure Ill buy again (

I just bought myself a bottle of this a few days ago, simply because it was a rum that is older than me by a year. I have only had one glass of it so far but I have to say I am very impressed. Comparing it directly to the 18 year version, the smell alone was significantly different and much less harsh on the nose. I am not an expert that can tell you all the different smells and flavors of the rum, but I can tell you that the smell was fantastic and the taste was even better, I had mine neat with about 15 minutes to breath in the freezer. There was a nice sweet flavor that and a very slow burn after taste in the throat. I will be buying more of this. Highly recommended

I cut my teeth in sipping rum on a 23 year old Kirk and Sweeney. I think I started fairly high on the totem pole. And, yes, I was hooked from the first sip.

I expected a burn and and aftertaste. But instead I found a fairly smooth swallow, even when neat. Over ice it slowly mellows unlocking more flavors.

In the nose it comes across as simple, caramel with a slight note of molasses and mild vanilla. Flaviar.com show cinnamon, honey and coffee. But I disagree.

I love this brand on the rocks or with a splash of soda, or small splash of pineapple. And it makes a fantastic old fashioned with chocolate bitters(2 dashes). My personal recipe calls fro 1/2 teaspoon of coconut syrup.

For the money, it is a great buy. And never disappoints.

This is the perfect sipping rum, comparable to the Zacapa 23 but richer and a bit more fruity on the nose (the Zacapa can be compared to an old cognac!) and a round fruit nose (think orange and fig) on the way down. Astonishing and superb.
