Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Pretty astringent on the nose and palate finish… there are better out there but it isn’t undrinkable… or maybe I have just gotten used to nasty stuff…
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.
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
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.
