Hey Unga,
I got the second one down. I didn't know there were so many kinds.
I just finished a Mai Tai using it... Mmmmm.
Very rich, I want to say it was almost... "chocolatey" for lack of a better term.
Aloha,

Yes, that stuff is wonderful. It is a very nice sipping rum and it makes a great mai tai. I have also used it in hot buttered rum. It's a great, smooth rum with an interesting flavor. Hard to find, but dirt cheap for something of that quality. I have never seen the other ones, just the rhum brun (2nd one down on Unga's posting).

PiPhiRho gave me a bottle (Mahalo!) and I agree, it's great for sippin' and imparts a nice flavor to mai tai's as well. Next: the hot buttered rum!! However - I've never seen it before, and if it's hard to find, I'm gonna have to sloooow down on it...

Actually the stuff is made in Tahiti by an American Ex-pate living there. Its pretty good stuff he is also the guy behind the Tabu Beer that is in Tahiti - Good stuff - Where did you get it, here in the states? If you go to Tahiti you can go to the plant where they make the stuff and a lot of free samples - Good thing its on an island

Hey Bunga since you live in Carmel have you ever crossed paths with Erhard Lux? He is a Crazy German guy who paints Tahitian landscapes. Excellent work. He lives part time in Carmel with his wife and the other time in Moorea Tahiti. A great guy with a lot of great Tahitian stories.

Hi Andy,
Know I have not. Sounds like a guy I would like to meet. And a life I would like to do, Carmel than Tahiti? Dream come true?
Does he have a website?

Giving this a bump... I tried some Noa Noa rum yesterday at the Emeryville Trader Vic's with TikiHula... we both really enjoyed it and would love to hear about how to get some in the Bay Area.

Any help is appreciated in finding a source... I did a search and could not find one for the bottle we had which is the taller version in tis post of the darker colored rum.

Mahalo!
