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Currently produced in Canada, Malibu Coconut rum was originally made in Curaçao from fruit spirits flavored with coconut and rum.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
Cheap imitation of better rums. Either move toward a real rum with higher alcohol content or a better coconut flavor if it is desired. Try Old Master if you want a rich coconut flavor to make your island drinks pop.
This is the first coconut rum I tasted. I thought it was the best thing ever, until I came out of my comfort zone and began trying other brands. Malibu isn't the best, but it's still good and it's available at most bars and restaurants. I'm still a novice, but I will still pick Malibu over an unknown, and it's still good for making mixed drinks.
Sweet, light, great for a party. Always a classic mixer for your favorite Frozen or mixed drink. No burn, but is a little too sweet.
Very sugary and it having a very low alcohol content it's kind of its own thing. I feel like it's only use is to make coconut based drinks that you only want to get tipsy off of. I don't have much experience with coconut rums, and I'll probably come back and edit this once I do, but I know that this is more of a coconut drink than a rum.
...Malibu to je kokos+sladkost, jasně že to nemůžeme srovnávat s prémiovými rumy. Babské pití. Věřim že hodně lidí si ho dá, já v minulosti Malibu+studené mléko a bavilo mě to....a když to tak píšu 1 takovou sladkou skleničku bych si právě teď dal:) Jinak toto pití nevyhledávám.
One of the few affordable "spirits" available in the sticks where I live, this is very sweet and has no real character (much like another Canadian product, Canadian Club "whisky") but at least it doesn't leave me with a horrible hangover.
...can mix it with several different fruit juices and make tasty cocktails, but if you ask me if it’s the best coconut spirit for mixing, I do have to deny.
Quite good in cocktails. And if you just want something for a shot, this is nice. Of course the taste is flat and just overwhelmingly sweet... but it´s not a sipping rum.
Oke, i'm sure there is something rum in this but just like the bacardi "way to much sugar" razz/lemon etc. it's just a sad excuse for rum. Hangover stuff, no thnx!
