. . . It's so close in taste and quality to the 18 year. Don't pay a lot more for this than that but if you're only talking a couple bucks difference then sure. This is a great rum. I gave the 18 year a 9 by rounding it up from 8.5, this is probably a true 9.

Found a bottle of this recently. It is thee best drink I've ever had. Let it breath for 15-20 minutes. It is similar to the 12 year old, which I reviewed as my "new go to," but the flavors are more incredible, it's smoother, and it is a beautiful rich mahogany color. It is slightly but not overly sweet. There are hints of oak, vanilla, tobacco, banana, and other fruits. I prefer it with ONE ice cube, which I won't call on the rocks, but giving full disclosure. It is hard to find, but if you can find it buy it. If I could have 3 oz of this every night I would consider myself in heaven.

Au nez, caramel, miel et fruits séchés. En bouche, bel équilibre entre le fruit, la vanille et le bois avec une bonne persistance.

Smooth, not too sweet sipper with honey-like accent. The 23 is much better than the 18.

Really enjoyable taste. Smooth and a little sweet. This will be a repeat in the future.

Hells bells! This be the best of the three Kirk & Sweeney rums I've had! The 12-year was great, the 18-year was even better, but the 23-year beats the two of them! She smells sweet, almost distractingly so, but that comes with hints of vanilla, smoke, cola, and unless I am mistook, dried fruits. On the tongue, she be SMOOTH with lots of vanilla. Not too sweet - not as sweet as she smells - but not dry. Aye, she have a great mouthfeel, and there be zero burn goin' down the hatch. On the finish, there be a hint of grassiness, and at the very end, just a tiny hint of the dried fruits. This be an outstandin' sippin' rum not to be mixed with anythin'. She be a bit on the pricey side, but she be worth every penny. Let me perish and rot if I be lyin'! arrgh!

That much better than the 18 yr. Worth the extra bucks.

I just bought myself a bottle of this a few days ago, simply because it was a rum that is older than me by a year. I have only had one glass of it so far but I have to say I am very impressed. Comparing it directly to the 18 year version, the smell alone was significantly different and much less harsh on the nose. I am not an expert that can tell you all the different smells and flavors of the rum, but I can tell you that the smell was fantastic and the taste was even better, I had mine neat with about 15 minutes to breath in the freezer. There was a nice sweet flavor that and a very slow burn after taste in the throat. I will be buying more of this. Highly recommended

This is the perfect sipping rum, comparable to the Zacapa 23 but richer and a bit more fruity on the nose (the Zacapa can be compared to an old cognac!) and a round fruit nose (think orange and fig) on the way down. Astonishing and superb.

I don’t like too much a dry harsh rum with an alcohol bite. But whisky/bourboun drinkers - this one is for them.
