The bottle contains a blend of rare and premium rums from the collection of Josh Miller, rum blogger at inuakena.com and all-around rum mensch.
Josh put together the blend from a bunch of open bottles he had and wasn’t likely to drink in a timely fashion. So he blended it all and made the bottles available to locals in exchange for a donation to a charity of his choosing. Since I’m local, I was totally jumped on this.
The rum blend is rich and flavorful, with a longer after-finish reminiscent of some of the heavy pot still / cask strength rums that I have tasted. Very rich and slightly leaning sweet due to the long aging for most of the included rums. And yes it for sure makes a fabulous Mai Tai as well.
Josh’s Inu A Kena blog was hugely influential in my initial deep dive into rum a few years back, and significant portions thereof still remain useful even if the blog itself has been on hiatus since 2019. Cheers!
