Kōloa Kauaʻi Coconut Rum

Info

Distilled, blended and bottled by Kōloa Rum Company Kalaheo, Kauaʻi, Hawaii, 40% ABV/80 Proof.

Kōloa Coconut Rum is made from the mash of raw cane sugar, distilled in an impressive vintage 1,210 gallon, steam-powered copper pot still and cut with filtered water from the ancient Mount Waiʻaleʻale.

The rum is distilled 2 times at 160 – 180 ABV.

Appearance

Kōloa Kauaʻi Coconut Rum presents itself as a white rum with a hint of Chantilly green opalescence, even and thick viscosity and well-defined, sparkling white legs.

Nose

Intense coconut aromatics with light hints of roasted coconut and piña colada undertones.

Taste and Finish

The initial taste is quizzically dry, probably from the pleasant 80 proof that Kōloa has kept the rum at, which then leads to the wonderful flavor of baby coconut flesh at the front of the palate. The spirit finishes with light toasted coconut, hints of fresh lime zest and the slightest bit of caramelized pineapple.
