Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
This isn't rum! It's only 40 proof, it tastes like hair soap. and it's too sweet for human consumption. You're MUCH better off using real rum and adding a bit of Coco Lopez. This stuff will make your nails fall off.
My go-to whenever coconut flavored rum is called for. This is not a rum to drink straight out of the bottle, too sweet for that. However, if you need a good coconut flavor that will not kill the other booze in the drink then Parrot Bay Coconut is a excellent choice.
There is a place for this one on my mixing shelf.
There is so much sugar .... so so much sugar ..... if you’re going for sugary sweet cocktails, you’ve got it!
Great for pina coladas and blends where a bit of coconut flair is suitable. Not a utility mixer, only for certain blends. Not refined enough for a sipper. Coconut flavor tastes too cartoonish when you drink this straight.
Wanted to go for Malibu but i saw this and was like let's go for it. Good for tropical drinks.
This is sweet and smooth. Good on the rocks but I like mixing it with some vanilla cinnamon bailey's. Yum
This is 100% not real coconut flavor, but I consider this more like candy than an upscale rum. Obviously this has little relation to more traditional rums, but for what it is, it's alright. Like most cheap flavored rums it's very heavy on the sweetness, and has that slight feeling that you might be drinking flavored acetone. I'd gladly drink this if offered some, or if I was strapped for cash and wanted a sweet drink.
If you like sweet and smooth with coconut you’ll like this. It’s not anything special, but it has it’s place. I just drink about a half cup on the rocks with maybe a lime and it’s good. I’m not typically a fan of flavored anything, but coconut is subtle.
It's right there with Malibu and when its all they got, its all there is!
This is a smooth drink. Good coconut flavor that is easy to drink by itself. Goes great for a pina colada. The only issue and big I think, is it’s waaaaayyyy sweet.
Good with pineapple juice! If you want a really sweet and tasty fruity drink go for this coconut rum, mixed with pineapple is not bad. For a hot summer day in Miami at the beach this baby would the job for sure.
I like this better than malibu mixes great for tropical fun drinks.
It's just as good as Malibu but offers a little more of a bite with the sweetness.
Captain Morgan Parrot Bay is not a rum, it is a sugar overload shielded behind a rum brand. It tastes awful, artificial flavors abound and there is nothing else to say. Skip this one.

This is actually pretty good for a flavored rum. A bit too sweet, but smooth and has a pretty good coconut flavor. Mixes very well. Better than Malibu to me for sure.
i like this better than malibu mixes well great tropical taste

This is what you drink in college, or if you need a coconut rum amongst other liqueurs in your drink. The knowledgeable drinker understands this for what it is.
This and Bacardi are my favorite coconut rums for mixing, if I had to choose one I would go with Bacardi but just barely. I use it and Pineapple to make a tropical mojito that is delicious. Not suitable for drinking straight but this stuff was never made for that.
This is my go to for coconut rum. I don't really drink a lot of flavored rums but this is one of the better ones. It's got a good coconut taste to it but never drink it strait, Get some limonaid and put some of this in it, tastes like sumer.
Bought this while travelling States with my friends, because it was cheap and sweet. Let's never do that again.
I like this rum because it has a sweet coconut flavor, with nothing more to it. I prefer it over the Captain Morgan Coconut because it doesn't have the citrus (pineapple?) flavor added to it.
Still, a bit weak at only 21%abv, and a bit lacking in flavor as well. A nice average coconut rum.
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.
