Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Rum tasting in Houston continued onwards with Kula Dark. Unique bottle and label design. Dark mahogany color. Caramel, vanilla and alcohol to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong but sweet burn at the end. Not even decent when mixed.
Strong notes of toasted molasses undercut by a spicy heat. Too harsh and unrefined to sip, but could find its way into a cocktail to add some toasty sweet depth.
Made in Maui Hawaii from cane sugar grown on the island and water from 3000 ft below the ocean just off the coast. Very cool and unique. Fine for sipping and mixing. Nutty, toasty, naturally sweet. Like the after burn.
The first two seconds are amazing, but then it hurts. On the rocks helps cut it a bit. For $20 its a good mixer over captain, etc.
Includes caramel color. Says it’s made for Mai Tai’s. Even with the inexpensive price, I had moderate hopes given the hexagonal bottle. I didn’t, however, read the fine print with the added caramel. Rather strong straight, but a little better mixed and at least I have a cool bottle.
It comes with a Mai Tai recipe and it would work just fine in one. It is a mixer. It isn’t bad…kinda good for the cheap price. It has notes of caramel in there as well as vanilla. I would blend it with other rums before putting it in my mixed drinks.
As a mixing rum with body this is pretty good and a good value at $20. I drink a lot of Mai Tais and this reminds me of the Trader Vic's Mai Tai. I would buy it again.
