Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The Coconut variety of Blue Chair Bay rum is produced in Barbados. The distillery is located just yards from the beach, while the rum is aged nearby in white oak casks.
Well known country singer Kenny Chesney created the The Blue Chair Bay rum brand, which is named after his ballad "Old Blue Chair."
It's natural coconut and sweet but it's just not good. It enters good then goes harsh (even at 26.4% alcohol which is low) with a strange tinge of unripened sugar cane. The sugar cane gives a potential like it is going to be really nice but then falls flat. The advantage of this rum is it is "thin" unlike cruzan which is almost like syrup. But ultimately you have a bunch of premium marketing claims (and price) on something that should not be worth more than 9$. No thank you.
This is by far my favorite flavored rum. The coconut isnt over powering, and the taste is amazing. i like the white version also , but the coconut truly stands out in its class. Awesome rum.
This is the smoothest and most natural tasting coconut rum I have ever tried, and I've tried more than my fair share of coconut rums. This rum can be sipped straight up, or on the rocks without any need of fillers. If Pina Colada is your thing, it is the perfect compliment to it.
It is not a standard 80 proof so it goes down very easy and because of that it is dangerously easy to loose count of how many you are drinking. I like my mixed drinks with a little bite so I would recommend added some BLUE CHAIR BAY WHITE RUM in addition to this coconut version if you are like me. This rum is great with Pineapple juice or an upgrade to any Malibu based drinks. I gave this a 9 instead of a 10 only because If BLUE CHAIR BAY ever makes an 80 Proof version of this COCONUT Rum it would surely be a 10.
And I was not disappointed. I debated over which brand to buy and settled on Blue Chair and was not disappointed. Smooth taste and not a too-overpowering coconut flavor. Enjoyed it immensely. I live in a state-controlled state so the only two offerings are Coconut and Banana ,which I'll have to try.
Sugar: Estimated at 50 to 60 gpl. Great coconut aroma and taste. No chemical taste or smell as with some other coconut rums that I have tried. The coconut and the rum are well balanced. It is very sweet and is definitely for mixing in Tiki style drinks. I give this a 7 as that is as high a ranking a flavoured rum should ever get. I would not drink this neat or on the rocks.
This maybe the best rum I have ever tasted!! And I have tasted a lot. Mixed or straight, this Coconut Rum should be a cornerstone liquor in your home bar.
Tried this one in place of Blue Chair White for my favorite cocktail mix (pineapple, orange juice and grenadine) and I was surprised that it added what I didn't know that my drink was missing.
I really like the taste of this rum, though I found the 26.5%abv a bit weak for my liking.
Taste is pretty much a sweet coconut flavor; not much else to describe it. But it's quite good.
This is really good coconut rum... I debated actually giving it an 8 (was considering a 7), just because it's a flavored rum... but then I thought... Well, that's what I'm rating it on now isn't it... Very smooth, perfect amount of coconut flavor, not too sweet or overpowering... very balanced.
A little on the sweet side but good coconut flavor. Very smooth. No alcohol burn.
mixed with the real sugar Mexican Coca-Cola from Costco. This is really tasty, just enough coconut flavor but not overpowering. I'd like to try the Blue Chair Spiced Rum but minimum order in Pennsylvania is 3 bottles.
I believe this might be the best coconut rum I've tasted so far, not counting it's spiced sibling of course. I'm not crazy about coconut rums, but this is not overpowered by coconut flavors.
I have sampled lots of coconut rum and this is hands down the best on the market. Would love to visit the distillery.
No shoes no shirt no problems, the most beautiful woman in the world next to me in a blue chair on a beach, glass of good rum, Tommy Bahamas shorts, a Cuban cigar and a beautiful sunset with some country music playing in the background.
Enjoyed a bottle of Blue Chair Coconut rum with my friend at the conclusion of a 5,000 mile road trip across 18 States. Unique bottle and label design for sure. Decent coconut smell is relatively pleasant. Unfortunately the taste test reveals way too sweet profile, and no burn at the end at all. This is marginally better than Malibu, but nowhere as good as the Florida based Siesta Key Toasted Coconut.
Although my all time favorite is Calypso Coconut Rum, which is impossible to find anymore. I tried Blue Chair because it was on the top ten list of many different lists on various websites. I decided to purchase a bottle along with several other brands to taste test and this is by far by favorite. It is very smooth, with a hint of spice. It has a taste that you can use for shots, or mixed drinks.
Came back from the Caribbean looking for coconut rum and found Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum at the local liquor store in Edmonton. Have been enjoying it ever since. Reminds me of the beach. Very smooth on ice with a hint of Coke for colour. Has tiny pieces of coconut in it that gives it more flavour. Last summer we couldn’t find it in all of Alberta and British Columbia. I was tempted to call Kenny himself. When I finally found it I bought a case. It was like finding an old friend. You can’t go wrong with Blue Chair Bay!
Def a good sweet rum that easy sipping etc.. Have not mixed it in anything yet. Good summer rum.
If you want to very social Rama, please this bottle in the freezer for a couple hours then take it out on the boat and pass around. It is by far one of the most fun and social rums around
Love the taste because it’s real sweet more than some other type of rums. Not too much coconut flavor but plenty of coconut taste. Thumbs up, & a great holiday gift!
I normally shy away from flavored rums, but since I finally got a hold of Plantation Pineapple Rum, I wound up on a quest to reinvent the Pina Colada from being something wimpy to something with a kick to it. One successful attempt had me mixing equal parts chilled Coco Lopez with an equal part of Plantation Pineapple Rum with no ice. The pineapple and coconut flavors combined with the rum, but it was too creamy and sweet.
So I searched through these reviews for a very good coconut rum. I had tried Koloa Gold when I was in Kauai last year, and it was so bad that I did not want to bring a bottle of their coconut rum home with me, which I later found out is highly rated. Then I found this Blue Chair Coconut Rum in a store and gladly plunked down the $17 price for it. Wow, this one can be sipped neat, warm or cold, on the rocks, or mixed with any other tropical flavors such as Creme de Cacao or Amaretto.
So how did my more powerful Pina Colada stack up? Try 1 part Plantation Pineapple Rum, 3 parts Blue Chair Coconut Rum, and 2 parts Plantation 3-Star Silver Rum for the perfect balance. Mix well and pour over ice to desired taste. No more creamy Pina Colada! The only problem with this drink is that the Plantation Pineapple Rum is hard to find.
Update: Now that I own what I consider to be the ultimate coconut rum (Koloa Toasted Coconut from Kauai), I needed to know how this one stacks up against it. When that Koloa finally runs out, I may have a very hard time finding another bottle, so a side by side taste test was needed. This one has 26.5% ABV and the Koloa has 40% ABV. This one is sweetened coconut and the Koloa is unsweetened toasted coconut. Both have a pronounced coconut flavor, which is what I want. If I never find another bottle of Koloa, this one will serve me better than the Siesta Key Toasted Coconut because that one contains honey, which is not part of the tropics.
I am also NOT a fan of Kenny Chesney, who owns Blue Chair Bay Rums. However, this rum did inspire me to order his two best beach music CD's, which are totally out of character compared to the rest of his rabble rousing drunken sing alongs that his fans just eat up. Check out Be As You Are and Lucky Old Sun.
The best coconut rum going....bar none. 7 parts pineapple juice, one part OJ and add Blue Chair to your liking. Summer Nectar of the gods!
Th is is not your average coconut rum. This is very good, no fake flavor, no weird syrupy texture. Just a great mixer at a good price. The only flavored rum I've come across and enjoyed.
The liquor store that I work for hosted a tasting of the Blue Chair Bay rums. This rum was a great coconut rum, but is just not my style. To sweet mixed with the overwhelming coconut flavor really hit you hard. However, in comparison to the Malibu Coconut Rum this blows it out the water. Higher proof, smoother flavor, and much better texture all make this rum 10 times better. I would suggest using this for any mixed drink that calls for Malibu Coconut Rum. As all the Blue Chair Bay Rums we tried we paired them in a mixed drink that complemented the flavor from the rums.
This rums mixed drink is a 3 Way Dark and Stormy.
150 ml Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
75 ml Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum
Splash of Tropicana Limeade
One lime sliced served over ice.
I like this a lot, but my liquor store stopped carrying it .so have to special order if I want more. same with all Blue chair bay rums, I always recommended it when I was in Liquor store and saw people looking at the rums.
