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Currently produced in Canada, Malibu Coconut rum was originally made in Curaçao from fruit spirits flavored with coconut and rum.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.
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.
Podľa mňa tento nápoj okolo rumu ani nešiel. Jedine ozajstné použitie je do miešanych drinkov. Nepríde mi,že je robený z prírodných zložiek,skôr umelo
This isnt rum but if you are looking to make a poolside pina colada, this will do the trick
It's a coconut flavoured ethanol somthing. Can you call this rum?
Love a bit of bu! Easy drinking as not too strong but still a nice coconut flavour
Jarabe de coco con sabor a ron, no lo calificaria como ron mismo. Podria servir como cocktail. Muy malo.
Like a cheap date dressed up in a fur coat with no knickers..
Enjoyable at the time but not something that you'd do regularly
Nothing to taste or smell here. Just for dissolving purposes.
Con zumo de piña esta muy bueno.........................
I love coconut and rum. Mix it with either cola or apple juice. I don't mind sweetness, but it could tone it down a bit (coming from a guy who throws it in with apple juice hehe)
we all know its highly flavoured stupid juice but we all drink it in those cocktails at times :-)
A very dry rum, but the coconut is ever so prominent. Good for budget mixed drinks, but there are much better coconut runs you could invest in.
Highly do not recommend shots of this rum lol
This is an extremely sweet coconut liqueur, I've had it on many occasions and, if I'm being honest, didn't even know it was rum based. It's not horrible, but it is extremely sweet, like a Bounty bar blended and (somehow) made into liquid form.
It's actually quite pleasant when mixed with fresh fruit juice as a drink on a hot summer's day. I would probably have given it a better mark if it were cheap, but both of the local supermarkets have this at £15 a bottle, given I can buy a full strength dark rum for that then I can see no reason to recommend it. If I was given it for free then I would happily take it, but at the price I'd pick up a bottle of rum and not a rum based liqueur.
Is this even rum? I thought it was a 16 year old mixer
Try it with Raspberry juice and ice for a “ruffle”. Decent for a pina colada too.
If you like coconut, then you will like the aroma. I can’t call this rum. I use it only for cocktails, to add a special flavor.
But its not bad at all.
Lukta kokos smakar kokos, bra i drinkar. Kan på sin höjd tas med mycket is i liten mängd men gör sig bra i flertalet drinkar och är en tacksam blandflaska.
Ok, a spiced rum, a classic Pina Colada ingredient really. Not my cup of tea, but very coconutty.
This is barely a rum, it's coconut flavoured liquor. Weak enough to drink straight, bad enough that you would never want to.
Cheap "rum" for a cheap drink. I wouldn't waste money on it, but it's the kinda bottle that every bar has sitting in the back in case someone wants it.
I can only imagine this rum was explicitly designed to be an easy, no-measure pour (read: dump) into fake tiki drinks and solo cups filled with canned Dole pineapple juice. On its own it is offensively bad, but when mixed with the skill of a college kid or dive bar bartender it comes into its own and results in something remarkably more palatable than most other things in that category. Various juices and Malibu are a better bet than Jack and Cokes and screwdrivers, and the coconut flavor is useful in a pinch for a crappy party punch, but this is not meant for anyone with an appreciation for rum.
Terrible choice if you like complex rums. Definitely not my type. Overly sweet.
Use quite frequently in Caribbean type cocktail when we have guest over. Not bad straight up.
Malibu cola. Pina colada. Malibu orange. This is it.
Wow what a sexist subject line to this review. Well, they will. It's a good rum if you have enough small umbrellas around to finish the bottle. You are not going to dig out your monocle, looking like the monopoly man, sit by the fire and break down the craftsmanship of this fine rum. You are gonna get all your girls together like Carrie Bradshaw in Sex in the City together and go out on the town on a mission of "man conquest" and have some Malibu rum. It's a mixer that has a narrow target. I wouldn't mix with a coke or Ginger ale. It's a blast your panties off tropical party in a bottle. Blender recommended.
Can't get to the Bahamas, Hawaii, or even out of your apartment on a Sunday, then Malibu will get you as close to a beach as you want. Sand and sunburn not included.
