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.

An excellent rum bursting with natural caramel and vanilla flavors. A good sipper but this really shines as a mixer with coke or ginger beer.

I think Koloa is one of the best American rum makers. This dark rum is my favorite of all dark rums.

Smells and tastes of vanilla, chocolate, caramel, and spice. Perfect at 40%abv and quite easy drinking straight. An amazing rum from Koloa!

This is one of my favorite mixer rums for tropical drinks. I especially like the exotic vanilla notes. It's a key ingredient in the Kauai Mai Tai. It's too bad I can't get it here in Colorado but I luckily have accomadating friends who bring me a bottle now and then.
