I attended a tasting for Koloa a few weeks ago and I was impressed.
On the low end, I couldn't tell the difference between the silver and gold, and both tasted like a vodka martini with an olive.
The dark was nice, but a little pricey for a mixer.
The spiced rum had a nice flavor, and is the only one I would consider a sipper.
Their coconut rum was outstanding, and from what I understand, completely natural. If I ever have need for a coconut rum, this will be my choice.

I haven't seen it in any of the liquor stores in my area.

Gotta agree on the dark - its fantastic, but is pricey at roughly $30 if memory serves me. I have a small bottle of the spiced, which I'll be trying soon on my next flight. I tend to pass over gold rums without much concern or interest.

YAY for the dark, the coconut, and the spiced. The spiced has a bit too much honey for me personally, but for a spiced rum, it's good. We just stocked up on all three at K&B in Del Cerro.
The white & gold are less exciting; we thought the gold was the least memorable.
