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.
My expectation wasn't high for this one but it actually is fine. For the money always go Diplomatico Reserva in my opinion. Having said that, this rum was not unpleasant and the strong coffee bean did sit well with a full flavor cigar so, under the right circumstances, I'd do it again.
I was really hoping this could be a good alternative to Kahlua since it has 34% ABV vs 20% ABV for Kahlua. The flavor profile is similar (very sweet), but I don’t like this as well as Kahlua or Grind. Also, the contents in the bottle keep separating. The attached photos were taken about 1 day after remixing. If you let it sit for multiple days, more of the content settles out and really sticks to the bottom of the bottle.
The flavor of coffee is strong in a good way. Its what kahlua should be. Mr Black from Australia has long been my go to coffee liqueur but this has more sweetness which I appreciate
Fantastic! Great coffee flavor and 70 proof. You can drink it straight or pour into your Starbucks or other beverage of choice. Much better, in my opinion, than lower proof coffee liqueurs.
