I only have good to say about this rum. Tried it neat, and I’d never have it any other way. Sweet smoky fragrance. Feels thick on the tongue, smooth, no bite. Just enjoyment. If the 18 is this good, I cannot wait to try the 23.
The nose is truly amazing, I am smelling like caramelised grilled bananas but I am seing a liquor, amazing.
Taste toffee, amazing smoothness with a little after burn, just to remind you you are drinking a 40% rum.
Overall a fantastic rum when you know its sugar content to be so low, amazing (did I say amazing enough?).
Sugar: 2 to 5 GPL
Podle mě jeden z nejlepších rumů. Výborně vyvážený. Jemný po chuti, lehce nasládlý, ve vůni dominuje vanilka, tropické ovoce a oříšky s lehkým nádechem do mandlí. Po polknutí lehounce zahřeje v hrdle.
Nemám co dodat je to špičkový rum a jeden z mých favoritů.
I keep all three Kirk and Sweeney rums on the shelf all the time. It seems to be something about Dominican rums. I have never had one I didn’t like. This one is my all time favorite. If I only had one rum to the end of time this is it. There is a distinctive taste of werthers caramel, a delightful toffee and almond back and great heat. Not as spicy as the 23 year Kirk and year. This one hit’s my perfect spot.
A terrific rum to drink neat with it’s oaky, vanilla, caramel, smokey notes. I also use it to make old fashioneds with just a little simple syrup and three dashes of orange bitters. Delicious!
I'm new to tasting fine liquors but I loved this one.. To me.. A rookie.. I recognized the vanilla notes. It was followed by sweet cream and finished with an almost cherry nutmeg combination. Wonderful.. This is the first liquor that I loved the oak and was able to clearly recognize it. :)
I typically taste a couple ounces maybe twice a month. This is such a delicious rum.. And it's election night.. Work tomorrow.. Temptation is brewing.. 3 ounces won't kill me :)
I gotta do 10/10! I purchased this one on recommendations, and I was really surprised by its slightly sugar taste, but it is OK even for drinkers who like dryer rums. Very nice aroma of vanilla and honey.
