Coruba Original Rum is dark rum produced by the Rum Company in Kingston, Jamaica. The blend is aged in charred oak barrels and caramel is added for color and flavor before bottling.
Coruba is a New Zealand brand, imported to New Zealand from Jamaica, and is the second largest selling spirit in the country.
The perfect mixer for a Rum and ginger beer (can't cal it Dark n Stormy as Goslings have trademarked that name) nevertheless its a perfect rum for that drink.
I first started drinking this rum in Mombasa Kenya in 1981, and even today i still go back to this one rum because the taste is just sensational and gives me the zing that is required in life like no other rum does
This is my favorite rum in a Mai Tai mixed together with Cruzan Aged Gold. The Coruba is a nicely balanced dark with not too much molasses flavor but just enough. Works wonders in any "tiki" drink and is great with cola.
Warm dark rum with a distinctive aroma. smooth creamy texture when mixed with a little cola and leaves a pleasant after taste
First off, the label in Canada looks like it was printed in the worst part of the 1980's. A fellow recommended it to me. I should've known better when he said, "If you like this, you should try Lemonhart". Too alcohol-y, almost paint thinner.
Caramel notes with smooth molasses and cocoa finish.
This is my rum of choice full flavour and works brilliantly with Coke.
Quite sweet by personally i highly Recommend.
...you'll need a few bottles of this in your bar. This is a perfect example of a rum that was made to be mixed in good drinks because it blends in so well, but isn't delicious or complex enough to stand alone and be sipped neat. It's a perfect mixer.
Didn't know it was an NZ brand even after all these years. I should really add another point just for that. Lol. Coruba will always have a place in my heart & on my shelf since it's the rum I grew up on. I'd only ever tried a couple of other rums till about a year ago & always used Coruba as my scale of what rum should taste like. For it's price range I reckon it's a fairly decent & honest rum. It's not trying to hide anything or try to be something it's not. It says to me, I'm here, this is who I am, take it or leave it. It's no sipper, but I don't think it was intended to be.
Perfectly happy to drink this rum when I ask for a dark rum and coke/cocktail. Not hugely flavoursome, but nice enough for a decent night out on the town.
Tried with both cola and ginger beer , not a great deal of difference , not bad but thats about it !
Dark mixing rum. Good with ginger beer. You really can taste the molasses. This is for mixing or cooking only.
One of the classic tiki drink rums, one you just need to have, it mixes well with most things and adds a robust dark flavor.
Very nice and smooth, full of molasses flavor.
