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Currently produced in Canada, Malibu Coconut rum was originally made in Curaçao from fruit spirits flavored with coconut and rum.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.
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.
Malibu Coconut Rum…Malibu is synonymous with the flavored rum category. Heck they might have invented it! Isn’t this usually everyone’s first coconut rum? Here I am just now getting to it. Was it worth the wait? Nope.
The aroma when I first opened the bottle was very nice. Pretty much what i expected. The smell suntan lotion. It’s like being poolside at a cheap hotel on a hot day. The taste? I was a bit let down. Sure there was some coconut and sugar. Lots of sugar really. But still I can’t believe with all that sweet how much of a bitter finish there is in Malibu Coconut Rum. Quite a bit of astringency for only clocking in at 42 octane. Even with a very small amount in my standard Tampico Citrus Punch that bitter finish just reared it’s ugly…tail.
The verdict? I will stick to Whaler’s or Cruzan for my low octane coconut rum mixers. Parrot Bay 90 proof coconut rum when I need some kick.
This is only drinkable when mixed. Its way too sweet to sip on.
This rum is one of my wife's favorites but I can only rate it this. It's a $16 bottle to mix with sprite cranberry or a cocktail of other sorts. Not great but happy wife happy life.
Proud Canadian product great for university parties but not a real rum
Good in certain mixed drinks. Not really good to drink straight.
Your tropical drinks will be much more flavorful by adding this great tasting fun rum.
I enjoy sipping it straight up.
“Mon amie laissez le bon temps rouler!”
It's hard to call this sweet thing a rum. But thrown in a coke or some kind of summer cocktail, it actually does it's job. During a day on the beach, I don't mind a Malibu and coke. If no one is looking, of course...
Purely a mass production rum. The coconut is artificial and quite obvious sugar addition. Repugnantly sweet.
El mejor sin duda
Not something to drink straight or with a mixer. Almost syrup-like in consistency and to me only has a place in cheap cocktails with other strong flavours.
This is my teenage rum...one of those i used to use by then in my efforts to mix up tropical drinks. I don`t use it anymore, it has purely nostalgic value to me. It`s not a good rum, overly sweet and cloying.The bottle is pretty though, i could use it as a soap dispenser:-)
Only gets a reasonable rating cos it's amazing with pineapple juice, otherwise one for the kids, and known to nauseate others! Ok in cocktails.... Hawaiian tropic anyone?
Nice touch with the coconut.
Rating it as a mixer more than anything.
...especially with cold milk, and optionally ice crunch.
Definitely been in my cabinet for years. Good for mixers.
As I was young i drinked to much of it :o)
but I can remember great evenings
I have had several coconut rums that blow this away. Brinley's is outstanding, but hard to find. I am not a fan of Bacardi, but their cocunut rum is actually quite decent. This one is just a fake tasting, overly sweet mess.
I tried this for the first time many many years ago and it shall aways have a fond place in my heart and for that reason alone i give it a ten
When it comes to these flavored fusion rums, Malibu is oneof the OG's on the block. I really like this on the rocks with pineapple juice,
Coconut flavored vodka
I'm gonna keep it short and simple. If you appreciate rum: Just Don't.
