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.

Solid rum, but a little more burn than I prefer. Nice complex flavor profile.

Tutu liked it more than Mimi. Somewhat complex, no very sweet. Grassy, hay, slight barnyard. We‘re not mad.

I bought 2 bottles of Kirk and Sweeney a few weeks ago when I saw at the upscale grocer on discount. A bottle of the 12 year ($29) and a bottle of the 23 year ($35). This 23 year decants well in about 20-30 minutes. You will get a very strong and flavorful aroma. Take a deep whiff to clear out your sinuses as you swish in a stemless wine glass. One tasting was neat. Neat for the 23 years was too much for me (I might just be a sally). I had to dilute so added an ice cube. I like that a lot. The flavors are complex with noticeable cocoa, some berries, light on vanilla and honey, some nuttiness, pitted fruits to the back of your palate and throat, plus a bit of oak woodiness.I didn't bother trying with a lime as the flavors don't need help. I did decant again with organic Sugar in the Raw and added an ice cube. I really like that combination. I do like a bit of sweetness.

Vanilla, then caramel, then oak in a smooth rum with a mild bite.

A fantastic rum, bought a fifth specifically for my wedding, didn't regret it for a second

The only reason I’m not giving it a ten is I would like to hope I come across something better. My favorite rum in the cabinet. A little sweet with noticeable age in comparison to its 12 and 18 year family.

I received a bottle as a gift - and am so grateful that I did. Very smooth, nice character and the spice notes are more subtle than the younger K&S selections. Normally I’m skeptical of the need to age rum over 10-12 years, but in this instance it seems to make a nice difference.

Since I've had enjoyed it's 18yo brother I've been looking for 23yo and here it is. Solid, with it's own soul which is not comparable with anything else.
Easy on nose, no alcohol burn on palate. Bit of sweetness (like coffee, dried fruits) combined with obvious oak (:or pine tree:).
Aftertaste lasts not that long, however it is pleasant.
9.5! Onto the top of the shelf!

An excellent sipping Rum. Not too much heat, luxurious feel. Lots of caramel, vanilla, and roasted nut notes. Very nice packaging and bottle. The price slightly outweighs the experience but not greatly. This rum improves with some time to breathe. Pour, wait until it’s time to ash your cigar for the first time, and enjoy.

Incredible nose. Oak, spice, currant and vanilla. Nice smooth alcohol punch. Deep and complex. Subsequent sips reveal molasses l, maple notes And more. Coats the pallet. No burn. Good Long finish. I prefer it slightly on ice but it is also terrific neat. Very high quality rum. Wonderful sipper. Kirk & Sweeney 23 will have a permanent home in my liquor cabinet.
