The Kohala Bay saga really does mark the end of the modern day Dagger legacy, which as Hurricane Hayward points out, traces it's storied past all the way to our Tiki forefather. In short, this is a mixing rum of a truly high order. A rum with an extraordinary readiness and distinctive funkiness such as I have never found in any other rum and which it is not likely I shall ever find again.

The frustrating part is that it's a product with significant built-in demand and potential for growth, yet by all accounts the importer sees it as little more than a nuisance SKU number on a ledger sheet that it finally has been able to put to bed.

The same happened to Oronoco rum.

Tonga Tiki may very well hold the record for the most (unopened) bottles of Kohala Bay! Lucky bugger...
