Coruba Original Rum is dark rum produced by the Rum Company in Kingston, Jamaica. The blend is aged in charred oak barrels and caramel is added for color and flavor before bottling.
Coruba is a New Zealand brand, imported to New Zealand from Jamaica, and is the second largest selling spirit in the country.
Unmistakably Jamaican, which I've come to enjoy.
It's similar to the basic Appleton signature blend, with perhaps a bit more of a molasses hint.
It's drinkable neat, and not what I'd call harsh. For a cheap bottle it hits above its weight, which makes it good value.
This and Appleton signature will be my go-to basic rums, for when I don't want to pay $10 more for the Appleton 8 year.
The perfect mixer for a Rum and ginger beer (can't cal it Dark n Stormy as Goslings have trademarked that name) nevertheless its a perfect rum for that drink.
This is a very dark rum, almost impenetrable by light when in the bottle. Caramel colour in the glass. The smell of the rum is sweet molasses and alcohol. Sipping straight assaults the senses with harsh alcohol burn... Although the sweet molasses still comes through. This is OK with Coke, hopefully better with Ginger Beer. Disappointing...
I first started drinking this rum in Mombasa Kenya in 1981, and even today i still go back to this one rum because the taste is just sensational and gives me the zing that is required in life like no other rum does
First off, the label in Canada looks like it was printed in the worst part of the 1980's. A fellow recommended it to me. I should've known better when he said, "If you like this, you should try Lemonhart". Too alcohol-y, almost paint thinner.
Dark mixing rum. Good with ginger beer. You really can taste the molasses. This is for mixing or cooking only.
This is my favorite rum in a Mai Tai mixed together with Cruzan Aged Gold. The Coruba is a nicely balanced dark with not too much molasses flavor but just enough. Works wonders in any "tiki" drink and is great with cola.
Warm dark rum with a distinctive aroma. smooth creamy texture when mixed with a little cola and leaves a pleasant after taste
