My wonderful sister-in-law (more of a great sister than an in-law) brought this back from a cruise she took and gave it to me as a Christmas present. I am wary of flavored rums since the overwhelming bulk of them use chemical flavoring or claim to use "natural flavors" without actually specifying what those flavors are. Most often they taste extremely artificial and leave a chemical aftertaste.

My sister (I'm dropping the "in-law" for the remainder of the review) wanted me to try the two she got for me (the other one is their Tropical Mango). I was pleasantly surprised at the very real authentic flavor. But I digress.

First off, the aroma is a nice coconut. Not overwhelming like most so-called coconut rums. It actually reminds me of a Mounds candy bar (sans the chocolate of course - they do offer an "exotic dark chocolate" rum....hmmmm....I may be on to something!).

Secondly, the rum is a clear with fairly decent legs. It clings to my snifter just a tad better than their tropical mango. It is only 50 proof (25% ABV) but don't let that fool you, it will sneak up on you if you aren't careful.

According to the label this is a "handcrafted rum infusion of toasted coconut, vanilla & sugar cane". I really don't detect much vanilla but the coconut flavor is extremely tasty. And is indeed authentic and nature. No coconut-flavored chemical additives here. The flavor is nice and as is the finish. Their tropical mango rum would be good as a simple after dinner drink, but this one might not be as appropriate. It is nice as a sipping rum albeit a bit sweet however I could see some mixologist using this in a unique cocktail.

Sadly this one is going to be difficult to get since they do not export nor ship their products. The only way to get some is to actually go to Roatan. If my sister goes again I am getting her to get me more including the other flavors they offer.

BTW, what are my top two coconut rums? Actually it's a tie: Koloa Kaua`i Coconut Rum and Siesta Key Toasted Coconut rum.

[NOTE: Much of this review applies equally to the Tropical Mango so a lot of this review is copied and pasted on that review as well.]
