At Tiki Oasis 12 in Martin's seminar I first got a taste of the Koloa dark. It had a distinctive nose of toasted marshmallow, which I thought was great. I bought a bottle at Total Wine, and no toasted marshmallow. Just an OK black rum. It's better than Myers's, which has a pool water like chlorine note, but I still like Coruba better.

I'm also offput by Koloa's price, and haven't tried it yet. I do want to get ahold of their coconut though. And of course Coruba is awesome!

Broken record here but to me you should buy their coconut rum blindly, because its just correct. Its made the way it should be and its as simple as that. Personally I can't compare their dark to Coruba, because to me its a much richer dark. Could be killer in mixing but also sippable, to me. The price, yes, is off-putting, so maybe you try it and move on, but for that price I'll still be buying the coconut whenever I need it.

Koloa is pricey in Hawaii as well...I don't love it enough to shell out the extra $$. I haven't had the coconut rum, yet, though...
