You know what you are buying with Kahlua. I use it in a 5 shot drink that is actually awesome. 1 shot titos vodka, 1 shot kahlua, 1 shot Mr. black, 1 shot selvarey cacao, 1 shot koloa coffee, 2 shots chocolate milk. Woohoo
But I like it when I’m bowling.
If you ever need a nice White Russian mixed up for you, talk to Jackie Treehorn.
Word to the wise.
Surprised to find this on here, because this is not a real rum. Brings back memories because I used to get drunk with my childhood sweetheart with this.
This classifies as more of a liqueur than a rum. I'd be interested to see how much actual rum is in this drink. Anyways, a very coffee-flavored liqueur if that's your thing.
I recently saw reviews for this one on here and had never considered it as a rum. Being that I never bothered to read the fine print on all of the bottles that I had bought, I had no idea that it contained rum. So, this silly fool thought that this was a new product. Wrong! However, I mistakenly bought "The Original" as opposed to the "Especial", which is bottled at 70 proof (35% ABV).
It has been produced with rum the same way since 1936. Since I love both coffee and rum, I could do no wrong. But for $26 US and only 20% ABV, it is quite an expensive wannabe rum. Since I have rated lots of flavored rums on here, I figured why not add this review to my ratings for future reference. None of my flavored rums get rated higher than a 6, but I classify spiced rums separately. This one is certainly one of the better flavored "rums". Hell, they have been making this one for 84 years. It would go great into my morning coffee to keep the alcohol content down.
This rum liqueur is mainly known as being one of the ingredients in Black Russians and White Russians. I swapped the two ounces of vodka and replaced it with two ounces of Brinley Gold Shipwreck Vanilla Rum while keeping this Kahlua at one ounce. I called my new drink the Black Caribbean. Mighty tasty!
I'm sure this is great in desserts, but it also tastes pretty good by itself. It's a pretty well balanced flavor between chocolaty coffee and rum. Neither flavor seems to overpower the other. Not bad for an after dinner treat. Obviously, it's not going to replace high quality sipping rum.
