Under the dominant alcohol aroma are hints of fruit blossoms and honey. The initial taste is ushered in on a slightly viscous body with underlying fruit flavors of mango, melon and cantaloupe. K?loa Kaua`i Gold finishes without any sharpness or the hot, spiciness found in some molasses-based, pot still rums. This rum is best enjoyed mixed as a cocktail base spirit.
Bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.
Arctic Wolf's review
After contacting the Kōloa Rum Company, I was sent samples of their entire range for my review. I decided to start the review series with the Kōloa Kaua`i Gold Hawaiian Rum.
Here is an Excerpt from my review:
“…A surprising mild flavour is the initial impression I received when I sipped the gold rum for the first time. Again the flavour of the Gay and Robinson crystallized sugar comes though very clearly. It is a honeyed, caramel flavour which is sweet and inviting. Citrus zest, and light peppery spices follow with perhaps a little plantain or banana in the mid palate…”
