Of all Koloa's over-sweetened rum, this one might actually not suffer from it. Yes, it is exceptionally sweet (still sweeter than I would prefer), and no doubt full of natural and artificial additives, but that coffee flavor is just so alluring. Flavors of rich, creamy coffee, with molasses and chocolate. Good for mixing in a wide variety of drinks, coffee-correcting, dessert-drizzling, or sipping neat or on the rocks.
But it's pretty good for what it is. I'm surprised how smooth this is and how well blended the coffee is. Not something to pick up if you're in the mood for a classic rum but something unique to keep on the shelf for special occasions.
I picked up a bottle during my recent stay in Hawaii, for an after-dinner cocktail that might appeal to a wider audience. I was pleasantly surprised how smooth and well blended the coffee integrated into this sweet concoction. It's not fair to compare it with pure rums, and I'd still like to try a wider range of Koloa rums, but this was extremely pleasant for what it is.
This is a great example of a coffee rum. Though it's not as good as aged rums to me, it's still great as far as coffee rums go. An excellent coffee flavor, with just the right amount of sweetness.
Koloa makes the best Coconut rum I've tried, the best Dark rum I've tried, the best Spiced rum I've tried, and the best Coffee rum I've tried. I hope they're working on an aged rum... :-)
This is an awesome flavored rum. The coffee comes through as soon as you open the bottle. Coffee aroma and coffee taste. If you like coffee and rum you should tryit. It's only 68 proof so there is no strong burn. I prefer aged sipping rums but I will keep a bottle of this on the self for times when i want a flavored rum.
This liqueur has a wonderful, deep coffee flavor with just the right amount of sweetness (it is sweet no doubt) to round it out. Also getting hints of vanilla (maybe a slight hint of cinnamon?) too and the flavors linger on the palate for a good bit. It's a great sipper and make sure to shake before pouring as there is sediment on the bottom.
