Now this is some good stuff
Ce rhum est vraiment cher a l'achat au Quebec, acheté a l extérieur du pays. Ce rhum vraiment est excellent. Meilleur que le 18 et le 12 ans oui, mais la différence pour le prix ne vaut pas la peine. Meme si je ne suis pas un fan des rhums agricoles celui-ci surpasse mes attentes. Il est bien balancé et complexe. Il goûte le caramel, miel, amande et vanille. Il est complexe et long en bouche. On ne goûte pas trop le chêne comme son frère 12 ans.
Damn this Sweeney is Kirk!! This 23 year old is complex on the nose. I really cant nail the many smells. First taste is most definitely vanilla then the orgie hits full pleasure. The 23 has a round feeling in the most, no bite. It ends with a wrinkling of the lips, curiously dry. Damn I love Rum!
Nice and gentle vanilla aroma. Taste is complex with butter, cognac, vanilla, pralines and toffee. Aftertaste is average but pleasant. Bit less sweet and bit more complex than 18y which I prefer.
There has been a re-branding and all age statements have disappeared. Someone also brought me a 12yo which has also been changed to 12 Reserva, with any reference to spending 12 years in wood now gone.
I like this a lot on first tasting. Rich, smooth with decent initial length which unfortunately disappears too soon. Possibly would benefit being bottled at 43% rather than 40%. Would also like to try with no added sugar, but it hasn't been over done.
If the length was longer and less sugar added, then I could see this being a 9.
Wow you can taste the fine, refined quality from the first sip. This rum is bursting with so many flavors! The taste is extremely complex and evolves after you swallow. Burnt molasses turns to sweet caramel with a lingering vanilla finish. With absolutely zero burn drank neat, you can tell age has turned this rum into perfection. This is my first in the K&S series but I am extremely excited to check out the 12 and 18 now.
Smells like a sweeter El Dorado. Tastes like a less intense and spicy El Dorado. Lacks something that makes it stand out, and the aftertaste, although it's nice, dies too fast
