I was the Sugarcane Bar in the Venetian on the Strip which is an exceptional Rum Bar and I asked their well trained Mixoligist surprise me and this is one of 2 rums he served. After tasting then having a mixed fruit drink with it I am hooked! It is thus far with out a doubt the best Coconut Rum there is. It is a must taste and enjoy.

Solid tasting coconut rum with a higher abv than most. Not much too it other than that. If you like coconut then you need to try this.

After reading reviews from "experts" proclaiming this to be the best coconut rum on the market, I knew I had to order a bottle for my wife who loves coconut rum (ever since she sampled Ron Ricardo coconut rum in the Bahamas). This coconut rum comes in at 80 proof which is higher than most coconut rums. This rum is flavored with natural coconut and you can definitely smell the coconut in the bottle. Not a coconut extract smell but a real, freshly-grated coconut aroma. Whereas the coconut rums I have tasted thus far overdo it on the coconut flavor, the Koloa coconut seems to have found the proper balance between the sugar cane flavor and the coconut flavor. They complement each other rather than the coconut overpowering it. The thing I found most interesting is that even though it is 80 proof there is hardly any burn to this rum but don't let it fool you. It will sneak up on you and kick you square in the butt if you are not careful. This could work as a sipping rum if you really like coconut. This also works beautifully in tropical drinks calling for coconut and rum.

If there is a better coconut rum anywhere in the world, I'd like to know about it but I have a feeling one does not exist. For coconut rum aficionados, this is the ultimate.

I bought a 5 bottle sample pack of Koloa rum. This one is FAR superior to any of the others. Best Koloa rum without question. I will go further, this is definitely one of the best coconut rums available anywhere. Top shelf in that category. So much better than Siesta Key, Malibu or Parrot Bay. Very nice, smooth with coconut that tastes natural. Not too sweet. Great finish. Definitely good enough to sip. Great on ice. maikaʻi loa!

No matter what brand of coconut rum you're drinking, I guarantee you it's nowhere nearly as delicious and authentic as this Koloa Coconut. The stuff at your local liquor store is made with parrot urine and old cigarettes. This rum, on the other hand, is made with real coconut and real rum. Nothing else comes close. You owe it to yourself to do whatever it takes to make this rum a part of your collection. Moving to Hawaii is a reasonable option.

Nice sipper with balanced coconut taste, not fake or overpowering. Hawaii in the bottle.

This is my favorite coconut rum. It has an outstanding authentic coconut flavor and isn't overly sweet like the more common ones. Wonderful for tiki drinks.

Koloa Kaua'i Coconut is simply stunning. Very hard to find, but what a gem. Nice old school label design. Clear color, but you can see the coconut in it floating around, so its not crystal clear. The most amazing fresh coconut straight to your nose and palate. Just smooth rum without any burn although its 80 proof. Beats the already amazing Siesta Key Toasted Coconut by one point.

To be honest I'm really not much on flavored rum. Aside from Plantation Stiggins Fancy Pineapple and this I'd rather just enjoy my rum rum-flavored. When most people coconut rum day think Mailibu. If you desire something sweet like Malibu (at only 21 APV it's more liqueur that rum) you may be disappointed. I, on the other hand, was pleasantly surprised by just how good this tasted. At 80 proof it's an actual rum, unlike most coconut rums out there. The sweet stuff is usually around 40 proof and the others come in around 70 proof. I've had a few and many are quite tasty. But this stuff is the real deal. I highly recommend, even if flavored rums aren't your thing.
