This dark rum is a genuinely deep chocolate brown that rolls with a cloying viscosity around the glass, developing into thick, slowly rolling light black coffee colored legs.
Kōloa Dark Rum has a robustly vanilla nose that envelopes the perimeter of the glass, upon further and closer whiffs of this aromatic vanilla behemoth subtler notes of dark semi-sweet chocolate, fresh brewed espresso and chocolate cupcakes arrive to round out the olfactory experience.
