Easily consumable in a bind
I was looking very forward to trying this rum. It's ok. The smell is nice...i can sound all technical and say "sweet coconut and vanilla on the nose with a hint of alcohol." That would be accurate. The taste is nice but something in the finish... There is a bitter taste like an artificial sweetener. The taste is good but the finish needs a bit of work to bring it home. On the other hand it is pretty awesome in DIET Pepsi. Forget what the bottle says about 2 parts cola to 1 part rum. Equal parts and some ice will do nicely. The bitter finish still lingers a bit. Would i buy it again? Probably not and that is only because of the finish..A really good effort to be a serious rum. Just needs needs a little tweaking.
Tastes a bit more like a aged rum with the malibu flavour. Not to bad but not compareble to a real aged rum
Tried a bottle of Malibu Black rum. Bottle and label design look dull and unimaginative. Nothing different to other Malibu bottles. Strong artificial coconut to your nose and palate followed with pure alcohol. Quite a strong burn at the end although this is super sweet.
Thirty years ago, the only coconut rums available for tropical drinks were low proof Malibu or Cocoribe. Somehow, Cocoribe is still in business, but very hard to find. So I recently found out about this 70 proof Malibu Black that trades higher alcohol for sweetness. It sounded like a winner....until I brought this puppy home.
This rum is brown, but coconut meat is white. Duh! It smells and tastes like artificial coconut but goes down smoothly. If it is that noticeable as being artificial, then why have it? By itself, it is not repulsive and won't go to waste or get flushed down the toilet. This is the worst coconut rum that I have tried and I will stick with Blue Chair Bay or Koloa, if and whenever I find another bottle.
I like the Malibu Black because of the higher content level. The taste can be compared to any other regular Malibu. I purchased it from Total Wine after having tried it several times before at the bar. It is an excellent product.
