Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
From the bottle it literally smells exactly like dubble bubble gum. Its color is so nice in the bottle but it says "caramel color" on the bottle so I cant give it any points for that. In the glencarin glass it smells of ethanol, no oak cask smell in there, that bubble gum smell again almost banana like, definitely a lot of spice. Drinking it straight all I can say is holy ship that is smooth. Abnormally smooth entry then the spice kicks in to a very pleasant and bold point and lingers. All flavors are amazingly balanced with a sweet taste. This is by far the best spiced rum I ever had it is best straight in my opinion.
For a spiced rum I was very hesitant, as I don't find much character in spiced rums. But Kilo Kai was smooth, nicely spiced and easy on its own. Hands down the best spiced rum I have ever sipped.
Not bad for a spiced rum. Better than the mass marketed grocery store ones.
This is something I like to sip on when my palate is already blown but I still want something to drink neat. It is sweet, liqueur-like and pleasant, not a life-changing rum but nice enough. (I also got a killer deal from an Atlanta area retailer, $17 for a 1.75 ltr - which is about the usual price for a 750!).
Interesting spiced rum. It is in between the lighter and darker spiced rums. The caramel comes through. I like to mix with cola.
