Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Bought this while travelling States with my friends, because it was cheap and sweet. Let's never do that again.
Only use if Malibu is not available. Basicaly an ingredient for a fruity drink if you must.
Coconut Parrot Bay is used in conjunction with another rum to make my house pina coladas. This way I add additional coconut flavor along with the rum. For those who don't care for the flavor of rum, I use this alone. Also for the lightweights its low in ABV. It's much better than Bacardi, but this isn't a sipping rum. Aficionados of rum are not going to pleased with this offering. This is marketed to the college kids and the party goers. Use it for what it's meant for and its an average drink.
Great crowd pleaser. This is a nice twist on a classic rum and cola. There is a 100 proof too, but I have not seen it in a few years.
Good for tropical drinks. Try and go for Malibu if you have the choice, if not for authenticity than anything else.
This is undrinkable.... Too sweet and horrible in all drinks.
Perfect for mixing.
This was clearly made for college girls, so thanks... I guess
Parrot Bay is the favorite coconut rum for mixing around our place. Affordable and pleasant to drink even on the rocks. Available everywhere and outshines every other shelf rum in the same category.
If you're expecting a rum that's 40 proof and comes in a plastic container to be good, you're a moron. This is really for amateur drinkers or as a "in a bind" mixer for frozen drinks. It won't kill you, but it won't make you feel that good either.
This is more of a rum flavor additive than a rum. At only 21% ABV (41 proof) it's quite lower than the 40% ABV (80 proof) of normal rums. This is not something to drink straight from the bottle. The coconut flavor is about all you can taste but it was clearly intended to be a mixer so take it for what it is. Very, very sweet...maybe add another "very" in there...and the word "sickly". And the coconut flavor is intense...too intense to me...artificial. One reviewer put it best when he wrote it was "like sticking your nose in a bag of skittles, but not nearly as pleasant". Even as an additive I wouldn't recommend it.
My rating of 5/10 is not in regards to the quality of this rum. But rather for the uses. For me this is only a great for any drinks where you would want some coconut flavoring alcohol is needed. I've used this mainly in Pina Colada and as an additive to desserts. So because of these two reasons this bottle will end up just sitting on my shelf for many years to come.
A tastier alternative to Malibu. The Captain can do no wrong in my opinion.
Så fik jeg den! - Har ledt længe og fandt den så og endda til en god pris. Glæder mig til at få smagt på den og få den sammenlignet med de andre Coco rum jeg har.
Chicks seem to dig it because they can drink it without a chaser. I think it's ok but I wouldn't buy it
This rum is a good basic rum. BEST for mixed drinks. NOT a sipping rum.
I keep a bottle of this on hand for when I want something tall and cold, but not much else. It's too sweet to drink any other way.
Sugar: 95 gpl. This one is good in mixed drinks. Don't try drinking this any other way. A bit too sweet for a Pina Colada but it is very good when you add it to Myers Dark Rum with some V8 tropical juice mix and lots of ice. We call it the "Huron Sunset" when drinking it at our friends cottage. I prefer this over Malibu.
When I first started drinking rums. My first bottle way Parrot Bay but back then it still had the good Captain on it. I had just turn 21 and had to get it. Placing then I thought it was awesome. Over the years I still enjoy it to this day. I mainly drink it time to time for nostalgia. It also pushed in my search for more rums. It is a good casual rum to drink but there are better ones to be found.
Great drink and go to drink for collage kids on spring break. Would never buy would never drink again unless holed up during a winter storm with nothing else in house
as fake rums go this is one of the better ones great for summer deck party's
This rum isn't overly flavorful or great. But it's meant to be a mixer and at the price it's decent at doing that
If you like coconut and a sweet rum, this is it! Also great for making pina coladas!
In a head to head comparison I preferred Malibu coconut rum.
“Mon amie laissez le bon temps rouler!”
Nasty aftertaste that even fruit juice could hide.
Edit: OK after attending a party offering other mixed drinks with "coconut rum", I think I just don't like coconut flavored rums. I like coconut, but to me all these taste fake.
