On the tropical island of Kauai in Hawaii, Kōloa Rum Company produces artisanal, single-batch rums, including this Kōloa Hawaiian Kauai Coffee flavored rum.
At its distilled spirits tasting room and company store on the grounds of Kilohana Plantation near Lihue, visitors delight in discovering their delicious expressions of cane spirit.
Located nearby, the Kauai Coffee Company operates the largest coffee plantation in the islands. Every day they’re hand-roasting small batches of their distinct coffee beans grown on the sunny slopes of southern Kauai.
The collaboration of these local rum and coffee makers has been declared a great success with the fast-growing popularity of this delicious coffee flavored rum.
On the nose, immediate aromas of mocha and medium roast coffee bean overtake the senses. On the palate, sweet mellow breakfast coffee develops mid-palate. A big note of cacao appears before finishing semi-dry. Lingering tones of authentic mellow-roasted Hawaiian coffee remain in the finish.
Kōloa rums are well known to rum enthusiasts across the United States. In the Miami Rum Festival’s annual RumXP blind tasting competition, they’ve consistently taken home top awards. Kōloa Hawaiian Kauai Coffee flavored rum is no exception. It won the RumXP Best In Class award in 2016.
This delightful coffee rum, bottled at 34% abv, is presented in a package worthy of gift giving for those that appreciate fine rum and good coffee. At 34% abv, the 750ml bottle sells for about $40.
