Testing Kenny Chesney's Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum was a no brainer for me. It is one of my favorite rums and by far my favorite coconut rum. Hell, I didn't even have to buy any for the this tasting as I keep it in stock at Island Jay HQ....but I bought another bottle anyway.
Some of your more popular coconut rums, like Parrot Bay or Malibu, are decent and tend to be a tad less expensive than Blue Chair Bay. However, I find that while those rums taste good, they do not have a good after taste. When I drink a less expensive coconut rum, I almost feel like I sipped a very sweet "hard" candy.
Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum is different. It tastes good and still holds it's flavor after it goes down. For this reason, it makes a good option for any recipe that calls for Coconut Rum, like Island Jay's Pina Colada.
For the price and quality, you cannot beat this Coconut Rum. If you are a fan of Pina Coladas, give Blue Chair Bay Rum a shot (or two...or three) into the blender and mix it up!
Pro's: Overall good flavor, great after taste. Excellent value and better than other coconut rums in this price point.
Con's: Only 40 Proof, but really nothing to complain about.
Would Island Jay suggest it? Yes. This is a great Coconut rum for any concoction that calls for Coconut Rum.
Price Paid: $17
