The Spirit is a collaboration between the Kauai Coffee Company and Koloa Rum Company.
Appearance: This Spirit pours and looks like a rich deep cup of coffee with a deep brown opaque hue surrounded by a light mahogany meniscus. Several swirls of this spirit in the glass reveal a hint of real coffee particulate that gather in the slow running amber kissed legs.
Nose: Freshly ground and brewed Aribica and Robusto Beans with the sweet smell of molasses and rich dark chocolate undertones kissed with a touch of Lilikoi.
Taste and Finish: This intensely rich coffee flavoured rum is slightly lower in ABV. which facilitates the amazingly complex flavours achieved. The initial sip is a highly robust espresso coffee balanced with white cane sugar, the spirit initially presents itself as a well-crafted espresso cocktail and then it’s back to a dry finish of light vanilla, hints of chocolate and that wonderful coffee flavour that can only be achieved by a great barista. Second and third sips of this elixir present hints of tropical fruit in the finish along with hazelnut and stone fruits. This is a remarkable spirit!
