Tasty, but not quite great
This is a top tasting coconut rum, so much flavour and very smooth. Easily sipped neat, not like Malibu which needs a mixer. Get it, you won't be disappointed
People compare this rum to Malibu where as in actual fact, they're miles apart. For a start Koko Kanu is a spirit (35% and over) whereas Malibu is a coconut liqueur. This rum uses real coconut for flavour as opposed to the over-sweet chemically taste of Malibu. A great rum as a mixer! If you have Malibu at home, throw it out and buy a bottle of this, you will not be disappointed.
From the look of the bottle to the taste this eludes quality, it is a premium rum with the addition of coconut, it's not too sweet and is tasty on its own with ice or as a cocktail, I can't believe the price of this for such a high quality rum. I like it with lime juice, ice and a bit of sugar with a mint leaf on top for a lovely refreshing drink. If you like rum and coconut try it you won't be disappointed.
The only coconut rum in my drinks cabinet.... amazing over the rocks and straight... Would seem a waste to use it as a mixer...
As coconut rums go, this is considered by many as being one of the best, if not the best. If it was judged on smell alone then I would whole heartedly agree, because it smells amazing. It takes me back to when I was much younger and I would drink Malibu and Coke on a night out with the boys. Those of you born in the 70’s will surely be able to relate. Drank neat, Koko Kanu has a very syrupy feel to it, almost viscous like and is incredibly sweet, maybe too sweet if I’m being totally honest. But, it does taste delicious, with zero alcohol burn and no horrid aftertaste. So for sure, this rum can and will be enjoyed neat by the vast majority of the rum community. But for those rum drinkers like myself who do think Koko Kanu is just a tad too sugary, especially after a few doubles of the stuff, then I suggest you use Coca-Cola as a mixer. Because turned into a long drink, Koko Kanu thankfully becomes less sickly and much more polished.
Ein süßer Rum mit Kokosnussgeschmack, nicht schlecht.
Geeignet für Alle die es gerne Süss wollen und die Kokos mögen.
Oder als Dessert, über Pudding, Eis oder zum Mixen.
Als Rum zum pur Genießen für mich zu süß...... meiner Frau schmeckt er gut !
In der Flasche schwimmen feine Kokosflocken.
Süß und mit intensivem Kokosgeschmack.
Mit Abstand der beste und auch stärkste Kokoslikör, den ich bisher getrunken habe, wenn es auch nicht viele waren.
Wird in einem fruchtigen Cocktail ausprobiert.
As for the Creole Shrubb, I do not consider the Koko Kanu coconut a "real rum." However, it is a very pleasant drink, which makes especially sense if you wish to diversify your rum tasting experience. The price is just great (£18).
