Koloa is responsible for my affinity for this spirit. I am a particular fan of the gold, dark, and coconut. So good. So smooth. Dangerous AF.

I like to mix it with orange seltzer, a little of the koloa coconut, and a tiny splash of guava nectar for a strong, smooth, flavorful, somewhat low calorie mai tai.

Another hard to find rum unless on the west coast. I fell in love with this one sipping it down in the Keys. It has a very unique taste. I would imagine you could make some great mixed drinks with it such as mai tai's. I personally enjoy sipping it and getting the great taste of sugar cane from Hawaii.

Put me in the minority that enjoyed this on the rocks as much as I did in a mai tai. I prefer a sweeter profile, and this delivers. Nice, deep caramel and molasses on the nose that carries through the palette. It might lack the complexity of some of the finer aged rums, and the price runs on the high side outside Hawaii, but I would consider this to be a special spiced rum.

I was a little surprised at how good this was over ice.

Nice little spice finish. Went really well in a mix drink.

Really great vanilla-coke flavor, smooth and sweet. I only sipped it neat but I think with ice it would be great. Might try it in a Remsberg’s Planters go to test of all rums:) 3/4 oz lime juice, 1 oz simple syrup, 3 oz rum, 3 dash’s angostura bitters. swizzle w crushed ice and a few luxardo cherries w a dash of luxardo cherry syrup. A Rum Old Fashioned of sorts.

The aroma is more complex than the taste. If you took a coffee bean and infused it with a little bit of vanilla, bittersweet chocolate, macadamia nut, and just a hint of clove...and then toasted it, that's the aroma I get. The taste...initially sugary coffee, but develops into a less sweet almost peppery finish.
