Kōloa // Hawaii, USA

Spiced RumRum that is flavored with a variety of spices, natural or artificial. They can be aged, though there is no requirement to do so.
"The nose is mild compared to the sweet vanilla bomb found in many spiced rums. The usual vanilla, cinnamon, and clove flavors are there but are very well integrated. Lots of vanilla on the palate, but the real hit here is the strong spice on the back end along with some heat due to the higher proof. This spiced rum is not nearly as sugary sweet as contemporaries and finishes spicy and somewhat dry."
