Tasty, but not quite great
Not what I expected from the high ratings (10's) I have read.
Is sweet - vanilla, cherry, caramel a spice? Hard to find any spice for all the sweet.
It reminds me of cherry cough syrup. Smooth with a slight burn in the throat. Mix it with Cola if you like Cherry Coke. I'll stick Sailor Jerry.
Had some good reviews, so I tried to. I'm not unhappy with the purchase as I was extremely curious, but the rum isn't fantastic. It's reminiscent of Kraken, but a little more.... soapy? They claim flavors of "anise, vanilla, banana, cherry, nutmeg and orange peels". I would have been happy with just two or three of those. I just can't think of a situation I would prefer this over Kraken. I'm giving it a 6, unlike Kraken which I gave an 8 (I believed), because it's not offensive. There is strong vanilla, it makes a decent rum and coke, but that soapy flavor... Not offensive, I just don't understand why anyone would want this flavor.
Have been a Sailor Jerry drinker for years. Then one day Jerry wasn't around... I was really in the mood for some spice and too many of my friends had been with Captain Morgan, though none seem to be in love. So, I tried Kilo Kai. Damn. That's all I can say. Had several at the bar... and am now on the hunt to buy a bottle. Or two.
There aren't many spiced rims in the world that I can drink without chasing but I've found one here. I don't understand what a lot of people don't like about this rum. I guess they don't like their rum to have sweet taste to it. It's pretty sweet but not all that sweet. It does burn the throat but not in an uncomfortable way. I've had Kraken, Sailor Jerry, Captain Mo, and a lot of the other rims you find in your local store and this is honestly the best Rum I have ever had so I'm gonna give it a perfect score because I just don't see anything wrong with it.
Wow! This one is BAD. It actually tastes fake. It isn't complex unless, like me, you start wondering what sort of chemicals are in here? No finish, thin, and tastes totally fabricated. Even for just $20 dont do it.
An entirely different flavor from the spiced rums I am used to drinking. Kilo Kai is overwhelmingly floral and soapy to my palate. The finish is nice: smooth, without too much alcohol burn, and with some subtle spice and fruit that linger, but the flowers are a powerful punch in the mouth. I have been keeping my distance from this one and just sampling occasionally to be sure I'm not crazy, but I'll probably try and give it away.
5 years ago I drank Kelo Kai exclusively . Loved the spice Vanilla splash. Then we moved to Tn, Al. and could not get it. Pensacola to the rescue. Publix special order. Liked it so much I ordered 5, 1.75 ML the large bottles . Figured this would do me a couple years. Light weight. VERY disapointed that there was no spice at all in it. WHAT HAPPENED.
I thought I'd try something new and picked this one up at my local liquor store. The scent is unique with an almost cinnamon overtone. Straight sipping is smooth and without burn, but it is not very interesting. Not the best rum and Coke, but I'll probably finish the bottle.
