Rum Sort of Day

This morning we went out to the Koloa Rum Tasting Room. It may come as a shock to readers who may think me abstemious, but I partook of a tasting whilst there.

We were given two shot glasses, one had a Mai-Tai mix poured in. The other was used for the various Rums. We started with their white rum, took a sip and poured the rest into the other glass. We then took a taste of their dark rum, and floated that on top of the Mai-Tai. We now drank our mini-cocktail. We then tasted a gold rum, a spiced rum, and a coconut rum. I was impressed with the spiced rum, which was far better drink than the leading brand in of this type.

The distillery is new having opened in 2009; unlike Whisky there is no requirement to age rum – although there are some fine rums that are barrel aged. They grow their own sugarcane, for as previously noted this crop has vanished from the island in recent decades.

I enjoyed the experience and the rum, although not sufficiently to purchase a bottle.
