We had been looking for a good coconut rum and all we could find is the awful sweet ones. Even made our own. Decided to try this one. WOW. With the toasting of the coconut you get more dark sugar tones which, with the coconut, give a smooth almost Mounds candy bar taste with out all the sweetness. It would be great over ice cream or just over ice.
Strong notes of coconut & vanilla - but the vanilla doesn't have that "artificial" aftertaste that trips up so many rums.
This is a 10 for coconut/spiced rums. No artificial taste in the slightest. I could sip this or add it to any cocktail. If you like coconut, you're going to love this. My only warning is that it is not a very strong coconut flavor, it's much more subtle than you expect from other coconut rums, but in the best way. It really tastes like a fantastic spiced rum with a subtle taste of toasted coconut. I love adding this to Mai Tai's and Caipirinha's for a hint of coconut.
I recently visited Siesta Key Rum's distillery down in Sarasota and took their tour. It was fun, educational and we got to sample 5 or 6 different rums. The Coconut was my favorite. Very smooth, sweet and flavored but not overpowering. They actually dump fresh grown toasted coconut into the rum and let it soak for several days. They use Florida grown sugar cane for their molasses. They will only use natural, simple ingredients in their rums, no FDA laboratory approved pseudo-franken-flavors!
If everything they said during their presentation is true then they really care about making the best possible rum.
The aged, reserved spiced rum was excellent also!
I bought a piece of Coconut Rum cake that I am having for a treat tonight.
I can't wait to pour some of this Coconut Rum nectar into a tall glass of ice and pineapple juice and just float away on cool ocean breeze.
Unfortunately I don’t get much toasted coconut but more of a marshmallow flavor. Maybe I’ve been so conditioned to artificial coconut flavoring that I just can not recognize true authentic coconut. Either way it is easy to sip, not overly sweet and balanced flavor. Once you get past the flavor, you can tell it’s a quality rum, especially for coming from the states. Well worth the money if you can find it(it just made it’s way up to Illinois, the Chicagoland area at least) and don’t mind a little flavor. Or if you like to support American made products, which most rum drinkers do not get the chance to do.
Heavy morning cereal nose like a cocoa coco, smooth but too sweet for my taste like a candy liquor, sippable almost no burn but probably best in a cocktail or over ice cream
Found this when I was in Disney world at a local liquor store. Have been buying it since and always have some on hand
Sugar: Estimated at 30-40 GPL. Now this rum makes a fantastic pina colada. It's sweet and smooth and the coconut flavour is real and not artificial. Had a pina coloda at a Florida bar and this was the rum they put on top making it the best pina colada I can recall tasting. Went straight to a Total Wine store and got a bottle. I tried it straight up and it needed ice to cut the sweetness down, which makes the flavours a bit watery, but what a great rum in a rum punch!
Along with the aromatic coconut I detect some vanilla and of course honey.
When I go back to Florida next year, this will be the first rum I pick up for the New Years Rum Punch. If you don't like coconut then this rum is not for you. If you like coconut in mixed drinks then give this a try. I am also putting a distillery tour at Siesta Key on my to do list next winter.
