I don't know if this is of much help, but the label on my now empty bottle says-

'Okolehao is made with aged whisky, tropical flavors and the ancient and revered Hawaiian Ti Root plant...'
' ...our Okolehao bourbon liquor...'

This was the last modern run that Hawaiian Distillers ran in the late 90's, early 00's I believe.

As this is the only version I've tried, I can't say if it has the classic flavor, but it was tasty that much I recall. Hope it helps your search.

There was an article earlier in Dec. (Honolulu Star Advertiser) about some old school okolehao...

Good Luck!

Our shipment of Okolehao Liqueur from the same people that make Maui Rum just arrived. I have no idea if it is authentic at all, but it makes an awesome Happy Buddha.

The commercially available okolehao from Haleakala Distillers (makers of Maui brand rum) is admittedly inauthentic. These folks were featured on Zane Lamprey's Drinking Made Easy and said as much.
