Pretty artificial, but a solid start. With others that equal it out there, can't see this one catching on.

This seems to be their gold with a sugar millโ€™s worth of sugar and someone knocked the whole spice cabinet into the still by mistake! It smells like a syrup and tastes like they just dumped spice in, forgot they had already added the spice and then dumped more in.

I wanted to like this more than I did. I found the sweetness overpowering the actual spice component which was far too subtle for my taste. In several cocktail recipes, I found myself having to add additional falernum, allspice dram or bitters, depending on the drink.

Sickeningly sweet and very alcoholic. One dimensional artificial vanilla flavor with backdrop of muddled spices. Has a medicinal finish. The longer I wait and reflect, the worse this rum gets. I recall drinking it on a beach late one night and it being very good. I must have had too much. Would not recommend as a sipper. It could be used for mixed drinks, but it is rather pricey. There are much better spiced rums for the price. In fact, I may buy the Kirkland Spiced just to do a side-by-side comparison.

This spiced rum is definitely very vanilla forward but for a spiced rum its not too bad. However, it is overpriced.

I like Koloa rums generally. This one is OK+, even though I donโ€™t like sweet rums per se. As a sipper, I cut it with Koloa Gold. The best Koloa spice rum is their dark. When I want to go full Hawaiian, I mix up the Koloa offerings. Mmmm mmm.

When in Hawaii you have to try their rum, this is a good way to go.

After trying their cocoa flavoured rum (which was a surprisingly pleasant experience), this was at the other end of the scale. The flavour here reminded me of medicine, cough syrup, there is also a harsh bite. While it might not be 1 star paint striper, it's rough and not one I can recommend.

Complex spices, but not enough body that I'd reach for it to sip. Likely amazing in hot cocktails

Excellent vanilla taste. We always go to the Koloa shop when on Kauai.

Was gifted this rum by a relative. Nothing crazy to write home about, but had a fine taste. For a spiced rum it was for sure on the sweeter end of flavor and thats nothing to complain about, the after taste was a touch on the uneasy side, but would quickly subside. If you want something a tad different wouldn't turn you away from this to try. If a sweet spice peaks your fancy, you'll have have good time.
