Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Kirk and Sweeney have their stuff together! All 3 ages are priced appropriately and each a little different than one another. For a few extra bucks than the 18 you can grab a 23 year. They are not dissimilar and again lots of creamy caramel flavor and vanilla, but not overly sweet! Highly recommend this and the 18, nothing against the 12 which is fantastic but for a few extra $$ the 18 and 23 are great buys!!
This is the one of the easiest sipping rums i've had. Excellent for beginners.
Edit: As of 5 days later I found this rum is lacking a bit I changed my rating to a 7 it's easy enough to sip but gets old after a few glasses.
Ein netter Rum zum Feierabend. Ganz lecker, viel Alkohol.
En lo personal creo que este Kirk and Sweeney es un buen ron, sin embargo no llega a ser tan bueno como esperaba; el aroma que desprende es interesante algo dulce, y ligeramente se puede sentir el tabaco; al probarlo tiene un sabor agradable, un poco dulce, matices de frutados y tabaco, sin embargo a mi parecer es un poco ligero, como que le falta densidad. El color es muy bueno, es caoba claro.
This is a great go to rum. Nice to sip and makes an excellent rum and coke! It is a sweet golden rum, with nice notes of vanilla, caramel and oak. It is smooth with a touch of heat that then fades back into a vanilla brown sugar finish, damned satisfying! Honestly this is an 8.5 on the Joe scale.
Udemærket rom med en fin smag. Ligger på 6,5 - 7,0, men har smagt mange andre der siger mig mere
This is my favourite Kirk and Sweeney rum, I love sweet rum and this is so very smooth, always drink my rum straight up and this is no exception.
Very smooth. Dryer than the 12 year and also more expensive, obviously with the additional aging, I like it a lot but also like the 12 year at the better price.
Received a bottle of Kirk & Sweeney 23 year old rum for Christmas and loved it! However, prefer the 21 yo El Dorado over this 23 yo rum!
This is a grade A rum. Top notch. Beautiful in the glass, on the nose, and in the mouth. Delicious aroma and taste. Smooth, slightly sweet, soft, buttery caramel, vanilla, amazing.
Having said that, it's only slightly different from the 18yr, and if you have to pay more than $5 extra for the 23, get the 18yr instead. Nearly the same experience, I wouldn't pay a significant premium for the 23.
Very enjoyable. Smooth. Great nose. Brown sugar and vanilla. Nice viscosity. Mild, pleasant “burn” and aftertaste. Drinking side by side with Ron Zacapa Solera. K&S is better. Zacapa seems thinner and less flavorful compared to K&S.
Has an after bite to it. Would prefer smoother going down. Almost acidic. not quite. Defers the taste.
The best rum I have had so far!!! I buy a bottle of this any chance I get!!!
Wow, just fantastic. If I'm traveling and see this bottle behind the bar, it's my first order! Just as smooth as can be, great color, oak, vanilla and the like. Perfect to end the night on or enjoy with a cigar, I know I have!
rum nieje velmy sladky, skor suchsi ale naozaj vyborny. v chuti preraza dubovy sud po cherry, a ja tam citim horkejsie tony cokolady a jemne susene ovocie.
I'm very perplexed with the Kirk and Sweeney 23 year since I had a high expectation about the bottle and having tried well over 200 different aged rums during the past 15 years, this is one of the biggest disappointments for such an old rum. Very bland flavor and still a very nasty afterburn. Such a big disappointment.
Almost identical to the 18 year in taste but less sweet.
First off this is packaged in an attractive glass bottle that's reminiscent of a pirates jug. The jug also helps display the golden color of the rum. Aromas of vanilla and caramel await you after uncorking the bottle. The flavor is present immediately with no harsh aftertaste. My new ATF.
Sampled K&S23, I had read a lot about this rum which had been on my wish list for some time. At $129 CAD in my area (compared to $43 US South of the Border) my expectations were high. After sampling this rum I must say it was a big disappointment. While the rum is smooth, I found the oakiness overpowering to the point that other flavours were hard to detect. Other reviews mention that the rum improves once it breathes but my initial experience was indeed very disappointing.
Super lækker smag. Især hvis den får lov til at hvile i glasset i 10-15 min. Lækker duft og eftersmag også. Absolut en rom jeg vil anbefale👍
I like the 12 but the 23 is just so smooth and easy to drink.
Very smooth with a caramel woody taste but not too sweet
Cest le meilleur rhum que jai goûter à date note de vanille avec une fin un peu épicé vraiment doux incomparable!!
It is a smooth tasty sipping rum with all kinds of flavours
