I recently went to a crawfish boil, which is a popular spring time gathering in south Louisiana. After all of the mud bugs had been gobbled up by everyone, I noticed a bottle of this rum on the table where the veggies were all cut up. The cook only used a half bottle of the 750 ml size to add to the boil. In my half century of attending crawfish boils and doing a few myself, I have NEVER seen this stuff used as a secret ingredient. I told him that this stuff has 100 gpl of added sugar, as in 25 teaspoons per bottle. He looked surprised. And guess what? No one even noticed this secret ingredient, so adding it to the boil was a total waste of money.

At any rate, I realized that I had not yet rated this "rum", so here goes. Once you get past the luring smell, it tastes like coconut syrup and not rum. As I said before, this one is loaded with sugar and has twice as much as the much better one from Blue Chair Bay that is also easily available. Out of the 13 coconut rums that I have tried and rated, this one is the third worst.

Not really like it. Good yo prepare pina colada. Noy a very big fan of flavoured rum

Sweet. Not much of a rum, but then again you do not really expect one. It is an artificial drink. But still you might want that.

En väldigt söt kokosnötsrom.
Passar sig inte att dricka som den är tycker jag, utan det är en drinkmixer rom.

I chuckle at establishments that consider this rum "top shelf." It's too sweet, almost cloyingly so. More sweetness than coconut flavor. It mixes well enough but I'd rather use a coconut rum that's more rum than sweetness in my mixed drinks. This is most people's go-to coconut rum which is sad, because there are so many coconut rums that are coconut flavorful and actually taste like rum.

Outside of being used in a sweet rum punch or something similar, I don’t see much place for this one. The last time this was a staple in my residence, I’m pretty sure I was in college & likely not old enough to drink it. Tastes like suntan lotion & bad decisions.

Smouth and full mouth, very dense, indeed has a taste of coconut, soft. Perfect for cocktails

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.
