Kirk & Sweeney 12 Year Old

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Kirk & Sweeney 12 Year Old to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Kirk & Sweeney 12yo Bottling Note

A marvellous 12 year old rum from the Dominican Republic, aged in American oak casks. A gorgeous bottle, and a rum to match its gorgeousness.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Thick caramel and honey, with old oak and cigar box coming through clearly. Develops touches of candied orange peel and redcurrants later on.

Kirk & Sweeney 12 Year Old Reviews

Do not confuse with K&S 12 Reserva, which is horrid.

Be careful.....very careful.

The 12yo has been replaced with the 12 Reserva. I quite liked the rather one dimensional approach that the 12yo took, and it was an easy rum to drink.

The 12 Reserva is utterly disgusting. It's as if they have spiced it and are using younger rums. There is now no longer any use of an age statement, hence why I think 12 Reserva might be being disingenuous.

The 12yo was good, the 12 Reserva is nearly (to me at least) undrinkable.

If this is no longer available, why do you advertise it?

Love this Rum, it is awesome 10/10 from myself, and I have been imbibing Rum for 40 years now.

Nice rum for a reasonable price.

Very nice Rum. Quite a sweet one and fairly smooth. Not quite up to my fave El Dorado 15 but nevertheless a lovely drink.

Drink sparingly

Very nice rum however caused severe headaches which made me worry about the level of congeners in this drink. (only ever drink a glass or 2) taste smoothness and nose all beautiful. Headache not so much

Vanilla bomb

I was genuinely shocked first tasting this rum as it tasted to me like a spiced rum. I had to double check the specs. The American oak overly dominates giving it a predominant vanilla flavour. It doesn't taste like straight rum at all. For the money it's not a good deal if you're after something that packs a real rum punch. There's no bite. At all. It's nice, it's smooth, but I think it's trying too hard to appeal to the masses.

Very nice well rounded rum

Nice. Quite bitter initially in the front of the tongue but warms and leaves a subtle sweet note. The woody taste is clear and quite dominant. I'd recommend for those preferring deeper rum blends.

My favourite rum.

My favourite rum at the moment. So smooth. Not a rum snob so can’t say it taste of hollyhocks or anything but it’s good. So good that I’m sitting in the garden now drinking it.

Very good indeed

A great rum with plenty of oak and depth of flavour. A great value sipping rum.

Well worth go

A beautiful rum. At this price you can't go wrong. A nice smooth dram. Thick and warming.

Very smooth rum

Very classy drink! This rum is smooth and soft in texture and go's down a treat.

Heaven in a glass

Wow!! Probably one of the most underestimated rums from the Caribbean, truly scrumptious not only in the flavours but also the aroma's that hit your nose prior to sipping this is so nice and thoroughly recommend.

Its nearly there, but not quite.

I agree with earlier reviews, you have to try the 23 Year old which is amazing. The 12 Year old, is getting there, drunk neat or with a little water (if that’s your preference) you will not be disappointed. Now for the 18 year old………..

Nice and Enjoyable.

Excellent neat, amazingly subtle start with a nice smooth bourbon-finish. Very nice and enjoyable.

2nd September 2018

Just wow. Nothing to beat it at this price.

Nearly perfect. If you want perfection go for the 23 year old. This is very close
Nothing to beat it at this price range.

All Weather Rum

I like this rum on many levels, full of flavor, no big alcohol finish. It has a slight bite of a bourbon or scotch finish, but not like Mt. Gay Black Barrel, or Santa Teresa 1796. Some other rums seem to be a warm weather sip, while this one you can easily sip in front of the fireplace, or anytime anywhere? Great as smack in the middle of all the things I like in sipping rum.

Nearly Perfect!

This is some of the best stuff out there. I thoroughly enjoyed mine neat. Beautiful sweet fruit notes on the nose and lovely sweet vanilla on the palate a must try.
