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.
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).
I like this much better than the clement coconut liqueur, which I hate. This is also on the sweet side, but the coconut flavor is much more natural. It's too sweet on its own so I think it needs some lime juice.
Enjoyed a bottle of Koko Kanu Coconut Rum while in London. Bottle and label design look nice and different. Real coconut to the nose and palate, and not the typical artificial coconut scents like you get with most coconut rums. Slight burn at the end, but nothing bad at all. Not as good as Siesta Key Toasted Coconut or Koloa Kaua'i Coconut, but not far from them either.
Koko Kanu has a clean, crisp taste it is a great mixer for cocktails, on its own and lovely with Coke which is my personal favourite. It's like an adult version of Malibu without that Malibu too sweet sickly taste. Even better being 37.5% but not tasting too strong. Good value for money.
I may not be a rum person but definitely loved this one.I can taste the coconut and the drink tastes pure. I would buy it again!
This is by far my favorite flavored coconut rum, I purchased in Jamaica for a good price.
I would love to purchase it closer to home though.
Forget Malibu! This is the best coconut rum ever. It's so delicious, it can be drunk straight. The secret is that it is made using real coconut and nothing else. Seriously recommended!
i don't know where the difference is to malibu. but it has a nice image. it sounds not so "mainstream" like malibu ;)
it works great with cola or coco-cocktails.
Ok, its just a bit more interesting alternative to Malibu but what else makes this rum worth attention? Nothing, to be honest (:
Most people that want this either know its a solid option for cocktails or have ordered a Malibu and coke when you dont sell it. For this reason it gets a 7 as it's the ideal choice for both scenarios!
