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Currently produced in Canada, Malibu Coconut rum was originally made in Curaçao from fruit spirits flavored with coconut and rum.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
This is barely a rum, it's coconut flavoured liquor. Weak enough to drink straight, bad enough that you would never want to.
Cheap "rum" for a cheap drink. I wouldn't waste money on it, but it's the kinda bottle that every bar has sitting in the back in case someone wants it.
I can only imagine this rum was explicitly designed to be an easy, no-measure pour (read: dump) into fake tiki drinks and solo cups filled with canned Dole pineapple juice. On its own it is offensively bad, but when mixed with the skill of a college kid or dive bar bartender it comes into its own and results in something remarkably more palatable than most other things in that category. Various juices and Malibu are a better bet than Jack and Cokes and screwdrivers, and the coconut flavor is useful in a pinch for a crappy party punch, but this is not meant for anyone with an appreciation for rum.
Wow what a sexist subject line to this review. Well, they will. It's a good rum if you have enough small umbrellas around to finish the bottle. You are not going to dig out your monocle, looking like the monopoly man, sit by the fire and break down the craftsmanship of this fine rum. You are gonna get all your girls together like Carrie Bradshaw in Sex in the City together and go out on the town on a mission of "man conquest" and have some Malibu rum. It's a mixer that has a narrow target. I wouldn't mix with a coke or Ginger ale. It's a blast your panties off tropical party in a bottle. Blender recommended.
Can't get to the Bahamas, Hawaii, or even out of your apartment on a Sunday, then Malibu will get you as close to a beach as you want. Sand and sunburn not included.
I admit this started it all for me so I have a love of Malibu. I keep some in my fridge just incase i want to add a coconut flavor to my coke which is delicious. Overall not really a rum as I no have acquired a taste for real rum, but not bad if you like sugar haha.
Basic coconut rum which I prefer over some other variants. But most often used for a Malibu Libre withe coke or a very nice cocktail is Malibu Coconut + blood orange juice + some sugar cane sirop on the rocks
