This is a busy place, because it is so good! We bought a bottle of the spice rum to take home. Each rum we tasted was worth buying.

The Koloa Rum Company is relatively new and already they're producing some delicious rum. Their spiced rum is the best I've had. I was happy to find it's available back home at Total Wine & More since the bottle we brought back is almost gone....More

We have tasted rum in Louisiana and now in Hawaii. We liked Koloa Rum better. They have a Coconut Rum that is to die for. Also a Coffee Rum that is very good as a after dinner drink.
