Top reviews for Kirk and Sweeney 23 Year Old Rum:
— This is a fantastic Rum and is smooth as silk. I think the 23 is worth the extra price compared to the younger Rum. Besides the bottle it comes in is beautiful and I use the empty one to hold some Single Malt that I like but comes in a rather plain bottle.
— Amazing aroma and very smooth. Sweet vanilla and caramel notes with just a bit of well rounded spice. One of my all time favorites.

Member Reviews and Ratings of Kirk and Sweeney 23 Year Old Rum
Oak and vanilla. Definitely spent lots of time in a barrel. Very smooth.
This is a great rum for the price. Very bright sweet aroma/taste to start with a smokey butterscotch ending. Very pleasant.
One of the smoothest runs I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. It is a little lacking in the flavor department, but a very drinkable rum none the less.
Best rum ive had. Nice carmel and vanilla
Nice sipping rum. Very nice tropical aroma, and Not very sweet.
Rum doesn't get much better than this. It's silky smooth and has a beautiful finish.
My go to rum. First tried it in Orlando then found a bottle when I made it home to California. Very smooth. When I’m not drinking Scotch, I’m sipping on this.

I thought I'd like it more than the younger K&S, but not really noticably smoother. Don't get me wrong, it's excellent, just not sooo much better than the younger sibling.
Very sweet, but very good. Makes for a great dessert drink.
Tastes like candy and wood. Only felt the heat of the alcohol after swirling around my palate for awhile. Delicious treat!
A lot of Vanilla on the back end with hints of nutmeg. Excellent rum to have on the rocks
One of my favorites, dark color, deep spice and vanilla Carmel finish with light char
Sweet molasses this rum is good. Nice and smooth as a sipper and great in an egg nog too.
Amazing aroma and very smooth. Sweet vanilla and caramel notes with just a bit of well rounded spice. One of my all time favorites.
One of the best rums I’ve ever tasted
Excellent rum !!!
Smooooooth! Lovely vanilla notes and mellow character. Great by itself
Outstanding flavor and incredibly smooth.
very smooth great sipping rum one that needs to breath for about 10 min then enjoyed slowly has great flavors
Mild and Smooth but not as sweet as I was hoping for.
Overrated. If you like rum, get Plantation 20th Anniversary or Diplimatico which are priced better and AMAZING.
Nice when it opens up, but a bit too much bite neat.
Very tasty, had a bit of a sweet side to it. Was very smooth for a 23yr old aged Rum. Very drinkable, enjoyed it very much and will buy again.
Smooth and tasty. I don't feel it is super sweet and is easy to drink. Just an overall really good aged rum.
Absolutely smooth, with delicious flavors that make you want to take sip after sip. I seek mainly things that I can just drink straight, and this is perfect for that!
After reading many of the reviews, I think there is an underlying detail that is not noticed.... most people have never really had an aged rum that is treated in the same respect (aging) as whisky and bourbons and this may be the first time they have experienced a true rum. The world of rum is often overlooked as it is just "rum", yet the offerings are as varied as anything in the bourbon/whiskey/whisky world. This is a sublime bottle that is just too sweet for me, but is an excellent example of what is capable from a master rum maker.
Super sweet and definitely what an aged rum is expected to taste like. Slightly bitter finish and at 80pr, lacking the punch i'd expect. Highly drinkable and enjoyable.
Very smooth and sweet. A strong honey aroma with hints of vanilla. I could sip on this rum all day long. This is my # 1 in the rum category.
Has a very strong note of vanilla, which in turn has a very smooth flavor. The end is a little but smoky but nothing overwhelming. Easily one of my favorites.
Fully capable of awakening the warming elves on a cold rainy day deep in the dark forest. A lovely subtle lingering smile.
Incredible rum, not too sweet, fantastic finish and taste.
Very enjoyable, smooth drink, again the flavor spiral is dead on.
This really is a phenomenal spirit. I say "spirit", because the artisans at Kirk and Sweeney have crafted a phenomenal product that would likely satisfy even the most refined rum or whiskey aficionado's palate. The flavor profile put forth by Flaviar is spot on and it is truly delicious. The value really is incredible as it stands up well to drinks that sell for twice the price. Very good neat, but also makes one heck of an old fashioned. I made one using a teaspoon of demerara syrup (instead of a cube and water or simple syrup) and chocolate and orange bitters. It was phenominal.
Fantastic aged rum, everything that you'd expect. The nose shows caramel, vanilla, baking spice, dried fruit, chocolate, honey and toffee woven into harmonious balance.
The elegant mouthfeel gracefully displays these flavors in a quiet reveal then build into richer tones of leather and baked fruit.
The finish is a simple fade of the flavors with coffee notes that linger with the baking spice.
Excellent sipping rum! Not overly sweet, finishes fairly dry with a hint of burnt sugar bitterness. Has a wonderful vanilla bean taste on the palate.
I think this rum is a victim of its own long-term aging. It reminds me of a Colorado whiskey called Breckenridge, which has a similar overpowering wood flavor but not in a good way. The front end is a bit like chewing on a pencil. Not a fan at this price point.
I absolutely loved it. Truth be told, I’ve never been a rum aficionado, but I was tempted by this bottle. It is sublime.
Loved this bottle will purchase another
simply one of the best rums i have ever had!
Most amazing! Full-bodied, flavorful, rich, and at the price it has become my go-to festive drink.
Not often I give full stars, but this rum is astounding.
My favorite rum thus far. Smooth and taste of oak with vanilla.
Absolutely the smoothest rum ever. Worth every penny. Rivals some of the best Scotch, Bourbons and Cognacs.
I feel I should give a fake rating of 1 star - I don't want people to learn how good this is in fear it'll breed competition for me to get more...
A good mix of sweet caramel sugar flavor and warmth with some nice vanilla notes.
A very good rum. I must confess...I had this one after the Dictador XO Solera Insolent so perhaps I was a bit distracted. A good dram, but I found myself partial to the Dictador!
The 23 yo Kirk and Sweeney is hands down the finest rum I've ever had. It rivals fine Scotches in complexity and depth. It is as smooth as a babies butt. The only problem I have is keeping some on the shelf. Like I said, it is smooth.
its a smooth aged rum with hints of vanilla and honey. A great drink to cap the off a hard day
Hey honey, where’s the Kirk and Sweeney 23? Oh, I finished that while you were gone, it was just sooo good....
I can’t keep this bottle on the bar, it’s so tasty that it’s quick to disappear.
First real rum I've ever tried. I'm more of scotch person. But this is fantastic... and the bottle is gorgeous. Makes for a great gift. I with I could get a 20+ year-old Scotch for this price.
Enjoying this rum very much. Unique bottle shape has a great visual appeal when pouring out for friends, and some deep flavors evolve as you drink it. Many will agree on base flavors of honey or cinnamon, vanilla floats in there as well, but it will hit everyone a little different. It is a rich and complex libation that can be appreciated from initial aroma all the way through the last sip. Definitely get some... no, wait, don't get a bottle, that way I can have it. Forget my review, I want to be selfish.
This is the most decadent rum I’ve had! The coffee chocolate and cinnamon dance on your palate and a deeeep heat follows that makes you warm all over. It’s the best rum I’ve ever had and plan on sticking with it!
Not quite the smoothest rum I've tried; however, it is pretty darn close...especially for a 23-year old. Rich honey and subtle vanilla undertones make this a very drinkable choice for sipping or including with your favorite blend. The bottle is unique too, which is what initially caught my eye.
Just fantastic. Silky smooth flavorful and happily complex.
Delicious with a vanilla finish.
Downright incredible. The aroma is the best I've ever found in a rum and the entire tasting experience is wonderful. Vanilla, toffee, brown sugar - all evident.
