Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The Coconut variety of Blue Chair Bay rum is produced in Barbados. The distillery is located just yards from the beach, while the rum is aged nearby in white oak casks.
Well known country singer Kenny Chesney created the The Blue Chair Bay rum brand, which is named after his ballad "Old Blue Chair."
This is by far my favorite flavored rum. The coconut isnt over powering, and the taste is amazing. i like the white version also , but the coconut truly stands out in its class. Awesome rum.
This is the smoothest and most natural tasting coconut rum I have ever tried, and I've tried more than my fair share of coconut rums. This rum can be sipped straight up, or on the rocks without any need of fillers. If Pina Colada is your thing, it is the perfect compliment to it.
It is not a standard 80 proof so it goes down very easy and because of that it is dangerously easy to loose count of how many you are drinking. I like my mixed drinks with a little bite so I would recommend added some BLUE CHAIR BAY WHITE RUM in addition to this coconut version if you are like me. This rum is great with Pineapple juice or an upgrade to any Malibu based drinks. I gave this a 9 instead of a 10 only because If BLUE CHAIR BAY ever makes an 80 Proof version of this COCONUT Rum it would surely be a 10.
And I was not disappointed. I debated over which brand to buy and settled on Blue Chair and was not disappointed. Smooth taste and not a too-overpowering coconut flavor. Enjoyed it immensely. I live in a state-controlled state so the only two offerings are Coconut and Banana ,which I'll have to try.
Sugar: Estimated at 50 to 60 gpl. Great coconut aroma and taste. No chemical taste or smell as with some other coconut rums that I have tried. The coconut and the rum are well balanced. It is very sweet and is definitely for mixing in Tiki style drinks. I give this a 7 as that is as high a ranking a flavoured rum should ever get. I would not drink this neat or on the rocks.
This maybe the best rum I have ever tasted!! And I have tasted a lot. Mixed or straight, this Coconut Rum should be a cornerstone liquor in your home bar.
Tried this one in place of Blue Chair White for my favorite cocktail mix (pineapple, orange juice and grenadine) and I was surprised that it added what I didn't know that my drink was missing.
I really like the taste of this rum, though I found the 26.5%abv a bit weak for my liking.
Taste is pretty much a sweet coconut flavor; not much else to describe it. But it's quite good.
This is really good coconut rum... I debated actually giving it an 8 (was considering a 7), just because it's a flavored rum... but then I thought... Well, that's what I'm rating it on now isn't it... Very smooth, perfect amount of coconut flavor, not too sweet or overpowering... very balanced.
A little on the sweet side but good coconut flavor. Very smooth. No alcohol burn.
mixed with the real sugar Mexican Coca-Cola from Costco. This is really tasty, just enough coconut flavor but not overpowering. I'd like to try the Blue Chair Spiced Rum but minimum order in Pennsylvania is 3 bottles.
I believe this might be the best coconut rum I've tasted so far, not counting it's spiced sibling of course. I'm not crazy about coconut rums, but this is not overpowered by coconut flavors.
Let me tell you, I love rum. Rum is life. Started with Malibu and am now at real rums (Diplomatico, Plantation XO etc.) Those rums are perfection. I am shocked and in awe that this rum is as cheap as a 750ml Malibu (California). Thank you Kenny Cheney for this fabulous concoction.
Let me tell you guys, this stuff is amazing mixed, neat or on the rocks. Its smooth like water with zero burn, Tastes like coconut and rum without being overly sweet. I bought it to up my Rum and Coke game but I now feel bad every time I destroy this beauty with coke.
I have one regret about this drink..... That I didnt find it earlier. Absolutely sublime
Very sweet and delicious. The coconut is not overwhelming. A great shot !!!
I truly regret purchasing this rum. I only picked it up at the suggestion of a liquor store employee. I'm sure it's fine when used in some fancy mixed drink. But, I think I'll stick with my faves. As always, I prefer my rum over ice with a healthy splash of Coke.
This is my new go to coconut rum. It taste like the Caribbean. I give it a 10 on the flavored rum spectrum.
I have sampled lots of coconut rum and this is hands down the best on the market. Would love to visit the distillery.
No shoes no shirt no problems, the most beautiful woman in the world next to me in a blue chair on a beach, glass of good rum, Tommy Bahamas shorts, a Cuban cigar and a beautiful sunset with some country music playing in the background.
Enjoyed a bottle of Blue Chair Coconut rum with my friend at the conclusion of a 5,000 mile road trip across 18 States. Unique bottle and label design for sure. Decent coconut smell is relatively pleasant. Unfortunately the taste test reveals way too sweet profile, and no burn at the end at all. This is marginally better than Malibu, but nowhere as good as the Florida based Siesta Key Toasted Coconut.
Although my all time favorite is Calypso Coconut Rum, which is impossible to find anymore. I tried Blue Chair because it was on the top ten list of many different lists on various websites. I decided to purchase a bottle along with several other brands to taste test and this is by far by favorite. It is very smooth, with a hint of spice. It has a taste that you can use for shots, or mixed drinks.
Came back from the Caribbean looking for coconut rum and found Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum at the local liquor store in Edmonton. Have been enjoying it ever since. Reminds me of the beach. Very smooth on ice with a hint of Coke for colour. Has tiny pieces of coconut in it that gives it more flavour. Last summer we couldn’t find it in all of Alberta and British Columbia. I was tempted to call Kenny himself. When I finally found it I bought a case. It was like finding an old friend. You can’t go wrong with Blue Chair Bay!
Def a good sweet rum that easy sipping etc.. Have not mixed it in anything yet. Good summer rum.
If you want to very social Rama, please this bottle in the freezer for a couple hours then take it out on the boat and pass around. It is by far one of the most fun and social rums around
Love the taste because it’s real sweet more than some other type of rums. Not too much coconut flavor but plenty of coconut taste. Thumbs up, & a great holiday gift!
I normally shy away from flavored rums, but since I finally got a hold of Plantation Pineapple Rum, I wound up on a quest to reinvent the Pina Colada from being something wimpy to something with a kick to it. One successful attempt had me mixing equal parts chilled Coco Lopez with an equal part of Plantation Pineapple Rum with no ice. The pineapple and coconut flavors combined with the rum, but it was too creamy and sweet.
So I searched through these reviews for a very good coconut rum. I had tried Koloa Gold when I was in Kauai last year, and it was so bad that I did not want to bring a bottle of their coconut rum home with me, which I later found out is highly rated. Then I found this Blue Chair Coconut Rum in a store and gladly plunked down the $17 price for it. Wow, this one can be sipped neat, warm or cold, on the rocks, or mixed with any other tropical flavors such as Creme de Cacao or Amaretto.
So how did my more powerful Pina Colada stack up? Try 1 part Plantation Pineapple Rum, 3 parts Blue Chair Coconut Rum, and 2 parts Plantation 3-Star Silver Rum for the perfect balance. Mix well and pour over ice to desired taste. No more creamy Pina Colada! The only problem with this drink is that the Plantation Pineapple Rum is hard to find.
Update: Now that I own what I consider to be the ultimate coconut rum (Koloa Toasted Coconut from Kauai), I needed to know how this one stacks up against it. When that Koloa finally runs out, I may have a very hard time finding another bottle, so a side by side taste test was needed. This one has 26.5% ABV and the Koloa has 40% ABV. This one is sweetened coconut and the Koloa is unsweetened toasted coconut. Both have a pronounced coconut flavor, which is what I want. If I never find another bottle of Koloa, this one will serve me better than the Siesta Key Toasted Coconut because that one contains honey, which is not part of the tropics.
I am also NOT a fan of Kenny Chesney, who owns Blue Chair Bay Rums. However, this rum did inspire me to order his two best beach music CD's, which are totally out of character compared to the rest of his rabble rousing drunken sing alongs that his fans just eat up.
