Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Koloa Kaua'i Dark Rum bottle and label design looks very nice and artsy. Deep brown color. There is some unmatured alcohol to the nose and palate with an explosion of sweetness and a tad of vanilla. Some burn at the end. Mix it with your favorite soda and down it goes. Not a neat sipper really.
Smooth mixer, as good as any other. Nothing distinctive.
Smooth with strong vanilla hint, a bit sweet but tasty.
A friend gave me a bottle of this.I was surprised how good this is with coke and alittle lime..Just like some fellow posters had stated,it is pricey so probably wont find this on my home bar.
Very dark in color. Heavy with vanilla notes. Bit pricey and hard to find on the mainland.
Pretty much sweetness all the way. That's it. For the price they ask, could be better and more refined.
This is a fine rum, with a nice nose and good flavor but I'm afraid priced out of its league. It lacks the complexities of a sipping rum, but will provide the right flavors to make your mixed drinks stand out...if that's what you're looking to achieve.
One of my favorite dark blends. Awesome with cola + citrus. Although it would be a great mixer, its too expensive and foo hard to find to be used as such.
I love this ...total surprise for me
Nice dark rum from the islands.
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.
I'd throw this in cocktails in a pinch. I'm Kama'aina so I'm all for supporting local industry. But, this was pretty unremarkable, low-budget rum in my book. Especially given my forays into caribbean rums from Guyana in particular.
That said, they make a mean-ass rum cake that you absolutely must NOT miss. They even do mail order!
