Distiller: Koloa Rum Company

Bottler: Koloa Rum Company

Brand: Koloa Rum Company


ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Sweet vanilla, coconut, faint anise, nice light coconut character with a light sweetness. Smells like natural coconut, not artificial coconut garbage.

Taste: Thicker mouthfeel, no heat. Really nice coconut character here – its easily the most prominent note here. Again, not syrupy sweet – it is effervescent and light, very natural. Light butter cream, faint lime zest, hint of plantain. Overall, its very natural and thats a great thing. Doesnt taste dramatically dosed.

Finish: Fairly long for the proof, lots of coconut.

Overall: This would make fine cocktails. I really enjoyed this because of how natural the coconut influence was – complete opposite of Malibu related products and in the best way. This would be great for adding nice character to cocktails.

Thanks for reading!
