Not a real rhum (half the alcohol) but tastes very sweet/good/coconut for drinks. Not for sipping !

One of those drinks that everyone had to try in college. Had one in my life. Don’t ever need another. Thank heaven that taste buds get older and wiser...

Not much character. There is a coconut taste, but it doesn't feel refined..

Not pleasant to sip or mix at all. The only safe place for this is as part of a combination of ingredients in either a cocktail or some kind of cake. Iconic bottle though.

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

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.

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

Posted 7 months ago by Simon Doherty from United Kingdom with 70 ratings

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.

Posted 10 months ago by ShaneD from United States with 14 ratings

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.

Posted 10 months ago by MikeyA53 from Canada with 33 ratings

Use quite frequently in Caribbean type cocktail when we have guest over. Not bad straight up.
