The aroma in the bottle is subtle, almost plain but is indicative of the mild flavor and understated sweetness found within. It is a bright amber color and has slight hints of vanilla and sugar...almost a buttery sugar toast flavor. Not overly sweet. Just enough to make it interesting. I find it a fairly unique rum worth trying. A little expensive for a gold rum but worth trying.

I've been really impressed by Koloa rums. They make my favorite coffee rum, my favorite coconut rum, and my favorite dark rum. But their gold rum is about average to me.

It's really smooth for a 40%abv rum. That's the good part. Tastes and smells of honey, caramelized sugar, caramel, a light spice, and possibly some toasted macadamia nuts. A tad artificial tasting, but decent.

A fine gold rum, but for gold rums I prefer others, such as the Banks 7 Golden.

Decent. Basic Caramel with a touch of vanilla. Nothing too exciting, but it’s actually sippable. Nice souvenir from Hawaii, although I was sad to see it’s available in the mainland.

Not drinkable straight. Not bad with coke. Strictly a mixer and not a great one.

I'd drink it again in a mixed drink, but as a stand alone sipper, Ill pass.

Rum from Hawaii?!? Why not! Place is paradise so it should be able to do everything. Great off the start, very easy. Gets a bit bitter going down, but finishes with easy after taste. Not an offensive or strong one. But it doesn’t have an unique taste, however still very easy to drink. Good one to share with a nephew who lacks self confidence, but somehow still gets a lot of girls

Enjoyable rum. Nice taste and can be drank on it's own and with your favorite mix.

Lamentablemente el color no es nada prometedor, opaco.
En nariz no se percibe nada, solo un poco de alcohol.
En boca suave, terriblemente bidimensional, sin gracia. El sabor desaparece del paladar a los pocos segundos.

Nothing too fancy, but quite a solid mixing rum. There are some better ones out there for the price, however.

Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Koloa Kaua'i Gold Rum bottle and label design looks very nice and artsy. Light amber color. There is some unmatured alcohol to the nose and palate with a hint of sweetness most likely from honey. Some burn at the end. Mix it with your favorite soda and down it goes. Not a neat sipper really.
