K&S 23 is one of the best rums I have tasted. It is definitely worth the £48 I paid for it, I don't think you can buy a better rum in that price range. Awesome flavours and smoothness with no burn. Oh and the bottle looks great.

Found a bottle of this recently. It is thee best drink I've ever had. Let it breath for 15-20 minutes. It is similar to the 12 year old, which I reviewed as my "new go to," but the flavors are more incredible, it's smoother, and it is a beautiful rich mahogany color. It is slightly but not overly sweet. There are hints of oak, vanilla, tobacco, banana, and other fruits. I prefer it with ONE ice cube, which I won't call on the rocks, but giving full disclosure. It is hard to find, but if you can find it buy it. If I could have 3 oz of this every night I would consider myself in heaven.

I haven't tried much higher end stuff, probably 20 different ones including the K&S 12, so far this is my absolute favorite with the 12 being #2. This Rum has by far the heaviest carmel tones of any rum I have tried.

Price is weighed lightly in my rating. I paid $50 for a 750ml bottle

K&S 23 is my absolute favorite rum so far. You won't find anything as deliciously complex at this price point (~$55). I'm traditionally a bourbon drinker, but this bottle called to me one day and opened up another world. Toffee, oak, tobacco, dried fruits, caramel, mild's got it all. The finish is long and velvety smooth and leaves a smile on your face every time. No ice, no water, and definitely no mixer needed. The following rums are comparable in price point but no where near as good: Zafra 21, El Dorado 15, Ron Zacapa 23, Brugal 1888, Rhum Barbancourt 15, Flor de Caña 18, and a bunch of unforgettables.

To be clear this is an añejo rum made from fermented and distilled blackstrap molasses, not an agricole rhum which is made from distilled squeezed sugar cane juice that hasn’t been fermented. I say this as some have mistakenly called this an agricole, which has a difference in production and flavors.
That said, this rum is excellent if you prefer complex, smooth, and subtly sweet rums! There are aromatic notes of sweet spices with vanilla being the dominant character and a nominal cask flavor even though these are aged for 23 years in lightly charred American oak barrels. For me, casked spirits tend to leave an almost acidic taste on the palate but this one doesn’t at all. At 80 proof you will get a nice warming buzz without too much of a burn when sipping. I enjoy this straight, on the rocks, and mixed. Some personal suggestions to mix this are to sub for vodka in a Moscow mule with Reed’s ginger beer and a squeeze of lime or with a good agave/cane based cola such as Q Kola or Maine Root Mexicane Cola (add a squeeze of lemon if you’re adventurous).

I like the 12 but the 23 is just so smooth and easy to drink.
