Angostura 1824 rum is a blend of rums aged for at least 12 years in oak barrels. The aged rums are blended, re-casked, and upon maturity hand-drawn for bottling.
This rum is named and crafted in honor of Dr. Johann Siegart's founding of Angostura house in the city of Angostura, Venezueala in 1824. Angostura 1824 rum production is now based in Trinidad.
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.
I rate it only because it is in the database and i had drank it in several occasions in the past. in my humble opinion i am surprised this is called and regarded as Rum. even though it is a rum product this one ventures too much into the sweetened liquors category, i guess since the definition of what is rum is not very strict such sweet abominations can be regarded as rum.
as for the Malibu Coconut itself. i understand it's a top selling, easy to drink, happy alcoholic beverage. it is tasty and i can understand the reason for it's popularity. if i wasn't a diabetic i guess i wouldn't say no from time to time. however in it's current formulation this product is dangerous due to it's high sugar content. i am rating it 3/10 as it is a known and a whole fully released product with it's market share. it is not going to be developed and will stay in it's niche of popularity as easy drink.with the word RUM in it's name. i am trying to be fair, since it's not a gasoline or barely drinkable as the 2/10 rating suggests i gave it the higher rating. however. i will be happy if Pernod Ricard would offer this or very similar product based on 40% alcohol Rum. (but not the classic 35% spiced rum with added sugar formula as the Malibu Black).
Not even suitable for mixing. This is absolutely awful stuff. This stuff should have been forgotten back in the 1980s along with padded shoulder pad suit jackets, leopard print spandex, and mullets.
It's a stupidly sweet and low proof coconut rum. Chicks dig it but at the end of the day, the product itself is quite forgettable.
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.
