Siesta Key Toasted Coconut rum, a version of their Silver Rum that’s infused with real toasted coconut and natural spices. Honey is added before it’s bottled at 70 proof.via American Rum Report
Maybe not as fun as the Sugar Island or sweet as Malibu, more of a full body that makes this special in the category of flavored rums. Mix or blend, a little tough as a sipper, this is a great addition to your home bar. Not saying get rid of the Sugar Island, one of our favorites, but add then play with this "adult" rum.
I don't have a ton of experience with coconut rums. When I discovered just how amazing Siesta Key's spiced rum was, I knew I HAD to try this one as well! I was certainly not disappointed... This rum is smooth. The toasted coconut flavor is distinct, yet not overpowering. As always, I enjoy my rum over ice with a healthy splash of Coke.
A friend of mine brought this bottle back from Florida for me since it is unavailable in my state. Having tried and rated the spiced offering from Siesta and reading the reviews on this one I was excited to try it. First off, I am a big coconut fan, so I knew I would like it. I tried it first neat, then with I cube of ice. The toasted coconut flavor is subtle and fantastic. This has smooth character and great flavor. Overall I preferred it with 1 ice cube just to settle down how sweet the rum is. This is the best coconut flavored rum I have come across. Too bad I can’t get it here because the bottle is almost empty.
This is a fantastic rum for tropical drinks. It adds a smooth coconut flavor to the drinks that makes one think he is on a tropical island. Best of all, for me anyway, is that the distillery is in Florida.
Dumping flavors into young spirits is one of my biggest pet peeves. If you're a small upstart, of course you need time to age and perfect your product. But all the rums I've had from Siesta Key felt phoned in and shortcut. A good white/silver rum or blend is a fine way to start. Going for the low hanging fruit with flavored rums for people who don't know or care about the differences is a huge turnoff. My hope is the folks at Siesta Kay have some rum packed away in casks and in 8 to 10 years we'll see some more refined and crafted rums, and the winecoolerish candy sweet syrup rums will go away.
This is a different type of coconut rum as it's flavoured with toasted coconut instead of just sugar. It's still pretty sweet with sugar but an awesome rum, sadly only available in America .
This is also different as it's a golden coconut rum rather than a white one ...
This makes a great cocktail for the price and adds a different dimension to a Cuba libre .
picked up this rum in my local shop, because it was a Florida Rum. Really enjoy the taste, not to sweet, just right. Visited the distillery in Sarasota and found out rightfully so, that this rum takes top prizes year after year. Agreed with the experts!
Strong and complex, perfect to mix with anything: soda, fruit juices. Makes an incredible rum runner and rum punch, and pairs well with Siesta Key Spiiced. My go-to rum and worth every bit of the $23-25.
There are a lot of coconut rums out there, and when mixed with fruit punch, they all go down fine. But here is a coconut rum you could even drink neat. On the nose you get a hint of coconut, but also smell the rum. The first sip has a bit of an oily mouth feel, but it fills your mouth with a sweet coconut milk flavor, followed by toasted marshmallow and nutmeg.
It’s very sweet and heavy coconut flavor. Reminds you of a Caribbean sunset sipping rum from a coconut. I really enjoy this rum and the this rum brand. Great price and good rum!
For those who don't care much for the taste of coconut and want a subdued coconut flavor to qualify as being a tropical drink, this one should fit your bill. I personally prefer the more pronounced coconut flavor and higher proof of the Koloa version, which I also consider worthy of paying another $10 for (see my review on that one). The flavors on this one are subdued coconut and honey. It can be sipped neat, on the rocks, or in exotic tropical drinks.
Update a few days later: The honey obliterates the wonderful taste of tropical coconut, so I now dock it one point.
What an amazing experience the Siesta Key Toasted Coconut was. Locally produced in Florida, easily available from most liquor stores at around $25 per bottle. Such an unbelievable coconut flavor and nose test. All real ingredients, nothing artificial. Smooth taste test and a very pleasurable long lasting coconut flavor at the end. Maybe a tad of butterscotch flavor, but its quite mild. Very well done indeed!
This is an excellent rum to sip if you like the taste of toasted coconut. i am not sure it would hold up well in fruity tropical drinks as it is probably not assertive enough. But why would you want to when it is sooo good on its own?
The flavor of the coconut really comes through in this due to it being toasted. This is refreshing to sip on and mixes well in a pina colada or even added to a pain killer.
This a great priced and very flavorful rum for the pre party festivities, or just sitting around on a sunday. One of my favorites.
This stuff is positively delicious. It's a flavored rum, but without any sickening sweetness or questionable additives. The toasted coconut flavor is positvely resplendent with soft, buttery tones and genuinely rich, fruity goodness. Available at Total Wine for $23.
This is one of the better coconut rums I've tried, and I've tried a lot. So why a 6? Because it's a flavored rum, which I don't like nearly as much as aged rums. Still, I scored this higher than most of the other coconut rums I've tried. As of this review, my favorite coconut rum is the Koloa Kaua'i Coconut.
Tastes of toasted coconut, spice, vanilla, honey, and pie crust.
