Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Malibu Coconut Rum is distilled from fermented molasses and blended with coconut and sugar. The brand is owned by one of the world's largest spirits producers, Pernod Ricard.
Currently produced in Canada, Malibu Coconut rum was originally made in Curaçao from fruit spirits flavored with coconut and rum. The original recipe was developed as a shortcut for bartenders making Piña Coladas, however today the stands on its own.
Flawed with a glimmer of hope
It is not a bottle i would even consider to buy. But i tried this out of curiosity in a bar recently. It does not taste like a rum at all. It was very sweet and is coconut flavoured at 21%ABV... Sweeter than anything i ever had before. The bottle is very affordable and looks fancy. It is nothing for serious rum drinkers.
I haven't had this in ages, and that's because I'm not a teenager anymore. Great if you like Pina Colada's and cocktails etc, if you don't, then leave it alone. As with everything else in life, it serves a purpose for someone, somewhere, but it's not really a rum. A girls drink. There, I said it...
This is the drink for you.
Let's be honest and call it out for what it is. Nobody's drinking this as a serious rum but it has its place.
My first rum when I started to discover alcohol about 30 years ago! To be honest I have never ever tasted it again so my review is based on memories compared to what I know now about the Rum world.
My advice would be: don't drink this if you want to enjoy rum, because the name rum would be far to much to use for this one. It isn't even worth reviewing but...it helps me get another badge if I do review it sooo 😀
The nose is very coconut, almost artificial coconut. The taste is moderately sweet with the aforementioned light coconut taste. Overall, an okay rum based liqueur for cheap cocktails.
