Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I really want to like Kula. They grow their own organic sugar cane and hand-process each bottle in their small batch distillery on Maui. I had a fantastic time touring their farm and the owners couldn't be better people.
The flavor of this rum is actually really good for an unaged light rum. However, there is a spicy harshness to this rum that makes it hard to recommend. Can be mixed well in coke and imparts a nice sweet vanilla tone, but it is as harsh as a light Puerto Rican rum and us hard to work with. A few years in American oak would do wonders to smooth this rum out.
Rum tasting in Houston continued onwards with Kula Organic. Unique bottle and label design. Pure alcohol and vanilla extract to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong but sweet burn at the end. Not even decent when mixed.
