Easily consumable in a bind
So sweet and synthetic that it made me nauseous. Two sips and I gave it back to the bartender. No way could I finish it.
Subtler than Malibu. But less sugary too. When used as a mixer feels and tastes a bit less intense and sweet. Which is personally to my taste. I really like this rum.
I tried to find an alternative to Malibu coconut. Sad to say this one is not it. It is less sugary, but also less coconuty. Not so much a sipper, and as for mixing, Malibu is better if you have a sweet tooth.
The bottle desgin is cool but the taste disapointingly unrefined and mainly suggary. Too expensive (20 Euro) for it brings to the table.
Even if i took it just for fun, it turned out to be addictive. I like spiced rums but even if this is made with white rum it has a really pleasant taste and the coconut aroma is quite strong. Only after a while the taste of rum is raising at the surface and gives your mouth a pleasant warmth. Really surprised by the taste, and for a decent price.
This is amazingly luscious. The smell from the coconut made me salivate, even before I poured a single drop into my pre-chilled tumbler. What a fantastic way to start a love affair with a new rum. I don’t usually drink any spirits neat, but I could quite easily make an exception for this one. The lovely coconut flavouring makes this rum so palatable in the mouth. Then once swallowed, there is no harsh afterburn. With Coca-Cola as a mixer, the coconut is even more apparent, making this rum even more agreeable. I also tried still pineapple juice as a mixer and I wasn’t keen, because the drink loses it’s sweetness and instead gains too much sharpness. To counter balance that, I then added some lemonade, which had the desired effect of making it a little more sweeter once again, with the added unexpected bonus of becoming more refreshing to drink as well. But nothing beats having this sweet coconut rum with good old fashioned Coca-Cola as it’s sidekick. To summarise, this for me is on a par with Admirals Old J vanilla spiced rum, for being so deliciously sweet and tasty. I suppose whether you prefer coconut over vanilla, or vice versa, will ultimately decide which you think is better.
Sits alongside Malibu for quality ... so many good coconut flavoured rums out there and this is clearly not one ... don't even know if you can call it rum it's that sweet on the tooth ... wow
This is without a shadow of a doubt better than Malibu, strong coconut but still with the edge of a half decent rum. But I just don't think it'll be able to shake off the shadow that is Malibu and because of the predominant coconut flavouring it does lack that bit of depth you find in the Spiced Dead Man's Fingers, and I think it'll mean that this will only be drunk in small doses as the coconut flavour will become quickly tiresome.
So bottom line is nice in short sharp hits
