Now this is some good stuff
A unique under scent overrules the first hint of alcohol for a pleasant experience as you begin to taste on the tongue. Full bodied with a great background as you sip, a very pleasant experience. This is a keeper for me...
Good Stuff. Complex, butterscotch, with some vanilla and banana. Rich aroma... Decently warm at the back end. Presentation is awesome...cool bottle.
I am new to the Sipping Rum Scene. I am a Homebrewer and drinker. My best friend is a big bourbon drinker and always wants me to try his different bourbons. Sorry not a fan ( I know Un-American). I was in the ABC store with him 1 day and saw Plantation XO 20th Anniversary and thought the bottle was cool, so I bought it and really liked it. So I have tried probably 10 different rums and have found Kirk and Sweeney 23-year the best so far. I love the aroma, the little bit of heat and I can't tell what flavor is on the finish but its good. My palate is still developing I guess.
This is my favorite rum. Even better I usually can find it on sale for around $45. Perfect for sipping. Goes down as smooth as any rum in this price range I have tried. Not to sweet.
Moje radost a super musím uznat můj první rum co jsem doslova vyžahl. Vůně karamelu a ovoce perfektně sedí k chuti je jemný a vyvážený uvolňující pozvolna vice a vice radosti a pohody. Barcelo Imperialo, BumbuuRum, Contadora u mě tenhle předběhl na TOP
I tasted over 80 rums in the last year, with a price range of 18€-120€, and this is one of my favorits. i really like the cherry finish, all in all absolutely worth to buy again and again and again
I hated this, all i get out of this is the taste of turpentine, almost undrinkable. Mixed with coke i choked it down but will never buy this again. Ron Zacapa 23 doesnt have the turpentine taste as I was doing a taste test on the two.
Very different from his 18y brother. This one is more woody. On the nose you can feel a lot of oak, vanilla and sugar cane. In the mouth flavours of caramel, again a lot of oak, vanilla and honey. Rum is really super-smooth. I rate it the same score like 18y because both are great but very different!
Thankfully, based on hydrometer tests, this ones got either very little, or no additives. So it's sweetness, to my palate, anyways, is a pleasant surprise.
Although it's been aged for 23 years in American oak casks, I could easily believe that some sherry casks made their way in here. I won't dive in to noses and palates (I also have been skeptical of that whole concept), but it's a delicious, sweet, and tasty rum that I'd highly recommend to anyone who came across it.
I should also note that the price given here do not feel entirely accurate. I purchased this from a Total Wine for $59.99, and a local liquor store sells it for $44.99, so I think the listed prices need to be re-considered, here.
