This is a GREAT rum; especially if you like the Kirk and Sweeney's as I do, but this one tops them all!

This has the classic Kirk and Sweeney flavor, with a nice sweetness, vanilla, sugarcane, caramel, toffee, oak, and sherry, but more sophisticated and smooth with 25 years of aging and at cask strength (65.5%).

A GREAT rum that's worth the money in my opinion!

Very sweet and hot. A one note vanilla extract kind of taste. Hard to believe 26 years of aging offers so little depth and oak. Really disappointing.

Classic Dominican rum (not a fan so add +3 if youโ€™re into brugal). Too much burn and i like hamilton and worthy parks, rancid taste that makes it borderline undrinkable. Box is amazing though A+ on packaging rum meh

Edition 3 (2020). Sampled at the Laka Lono Rum Club tasting on 8/9/22. Bourbon barrel aged. The aroma seems under expressed, but wow, at 131 proof, this is like a mead on steroids. Tangerines. With a few drops of water, this opens up and the aroma explodes. Sure this is great, but is it $250 a bottle great?

Right from the start the presentation is one of the finest, complete with a decanter style glass stopper and engraved bottle. Big start to live up to, then itโ€™s cask strength at 65.5% wow what is this awesome rum going to taste like? Surprisingly the nose has little or no alcohol burn, color is deep gold to medium brown in the bottle. Same color in the glass, bit more alcohol on the nose in the glass, first sip warm layers developing on there own in a good way. Feel no need for any water drops, I canโ€™t nail it down exactly but some kind of island spice bread that leaves me wanting another slice.

Received this as a gift and I immediately hid from any potential intruders! It's an amazing rum! If you like the regular Kirk and Sweeny this is just exactly that, except it's Richer... Stronger... And just down right Delicious! But be careful...its very strong.

Amazing rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continued with Kirk and Sweeney XO. Very nice and sturdy bottle design. Golden color. Very potent at 65.5% alcohol. Surprisingly short ending. Clearly the best of the best Kirk and Sweeney lineup.
