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Currently produced in Canada, Malibu Coconut rum was originally made in Curaçao from fruit spirits flavored with coconut and rum.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
Absolutely perfect for your guests who want booze without tasting it in a fruity drink. Not a serious rum, but that doesn’t make it an awful product.
It's not the worst coconut rum out there, but it's close. There are so many other options these days and you're better off with nearly all of them.
Watch out, it's not really rum, but liqueur, so opinion, rating and point of view shall be little different, not offensive named as bad rum. Sweet liqueur with classic coconut taste. Nothing special, but as a sort of alcohol to get inside to body to have a nicer summer day, is this liqueur good mild and tasty.
If you enjoy anything about aged rums or really any other rum, then this will most likely be a horribly disappointing rum. However, if you have a sweet tooth like me and are willing to drink things that are probably not fit for human consumption, then this is a pretty good thing to sip on. My main complaint is that this doesn't really taste like coconut at all, like most coconut rums at this price point, so I consider it more of a candy than something to take seriously.
I agree with people criticising the chemical coconut aftertaste: it's very bad. The overall taste is terrible, it is just good for creating those cocktails that requires this rum. Drinking it straight is suicide.
