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Currently produced in Canada, Malibu Coconut rum was originally made in Curaçao from fruit spirits flavored with coconut and rum.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
Cheap, cheerful, easily obtainable and probably you want this in your home bar for those "friends" visiting that want a sweet coconut flavoured cocktail.
Just go the supermarket walk straight passed this Malibu and get yourself a ripe coconut and start making some home-made real unsweetened coconut rum at higher proof. Plenty of recipes on-line to get you there,
Make sure to hide it from your "friends" as they will see the light and drink your home-made good stuff ;)
My affair with rum began when I was slightly underage, and slightly more naive. Asking the barman for a 'surprise' drink luckily resulted in what is now my standard drink; Malibu and cranberry. The sharpness of cranberry with the crispness of coconut and a twinge of lime makes it my perfect drink.
I use this one in a easy mixer with pineapple juice! It's low rum rate and strong coconut taste makes it taste like your on holiday...
I've been drinking this since forever, half the time without not knowing it, since this is probably the favorite bar staple for making Hawaiian drinks. Good enough, but would l-o-v-e to see an organic version on the market, especially now that coconut water and milk have become such the rage with the vegan yoga crowd recently.
Malibu pretty much speaks for itself. It's super sweet and used to add coconut flavor to your tropical beverages without overpowering your main spirit. Malibu can practically be drank like juice, but enjoying it neat is a good way to give yourself a head ache. I think malibu should be in everyone's cabinet just based off of its versatility.
sickly sweet and strong. can only recommend use in cocktails, not by itself or with a single mixer. it tastes exactly what i would imagine coconut perfume would
Reminded me of chewing sweet, flavored bubblegum for kids. Does this thing contain alcohol, even? Nice for dessert. NOT a rum. Retail vendors correctly list it under "liquer" tag. Too sweet... *Ptooie*
Consumable in college at parties and maybe take a swig at bonfire beach parties, but not something I would ever keep at home. Its not really rum though in my opinion.
