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Currently produced in Canada, Malibu Coconut rum was originally made in Curaçao from fruit spirits flavored with coconut and rum.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 a real rhum (half the alcohol) but tastes very sweet/good/coconut for drinks. Not for sipping !
Fantastic in a Pina colada or mixed with a tropical juice blend! Very refreshing. Nice summer drink, poolside or at the beach
The rum to get if your in a bind I guess. I got this when I was young and have never went back to it. The coconut flavor seems too artificial and it just doesn't leave a good after taste. Best as a mixd drink of course. You could do worse
Low proof and pretty sickly. There is worse but good rum and coconut water is far better
I had this as a child, it was my introduction to spirits.
its sweet and best served in a cocktail
Je to vôbec rum? To je otázka. Pije sa príliš ľahko a najlepší je z mliekom.
Mixer only. Not really a rum. Needs a mixer to tolerate
I like the coconut taste everywhere it goes. This one is greatest flavoured rum for me.
Sure, it is not a fine sipping wine, but for a frozen Strawberry Daiquiri or Pina Colada, it is excellent.
This is advertised as caribbean rum with coconut flavour added to it, not just rum. They do a fantastic job of making a perfect mixer which is what this was created for. Sweet, flavourful and addictive. i'm getting exactly what i was told i would get. A staple in my liquor cabinet
I like Malibu on a warm night mixed with a combination or orange, pineapple, and just a splash of cranberry juice. Also good if you add a dark rum to go with it such as kraken
Malibu Coconut Rum…Malibu is synonymous with the flavored rum category. Heck they might have invented it! Isn’t this usually everyone’s first coconut rum? Here I am just now getting to it. Was it worth the wait? Nope.
The aroma when I first opened the bottle was very nice. Pretty much what i expected. The smell suntan lotion. It’s like being poolside at a cheap hotel on a hot day. The taste? I was a bit let down. Sure there was some coconut and sugar. Lots of sugar really. But still I can’t believe with all that sweet how much of a bitter finish there is in Malibu Coconut Rum. Quite a bit of astringency for only clocking in at 42 octane. Even with a very small amount in my standard Tampico Citrus Punch that bitter finish just reared it’s ugly…tail.
The verdict? I will stick to Whaler’s or Cruzan for my low octane coconut rum mixers. Parrot Bay 90 proof coconut rum when I need some kick.
This is only drinkable when mixed. Its way too sweet to sip on.
This rum is one of my wife's favorites but I can only rate it this. It's a $16 bottle to mix with sprite cranberry or a cocktail of other sorts. Not great but happy wife happy life.
Proud Canadian product great for university parties but not a real rum
Good in certain mixed drinks. Not really good to drink straight.
Your tropical drinks will be much more flavorful by adding this great tasting fun rum.
I enjoy sipping it straight up.
“Mon amie laissez le bon temps rouler!”
It's hard to call this sweet thing a rum. But thrown in a coke or some kind of summer cocktail, it actually does it's job. During a day on the beach, I don't mind a Malibu and coke. If no one is looking, of course...
Purely a mass production rum. The coconut is artificial and quite obvious sugar addition. Repugnantly sweet.
El mejor sin duda
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.
This is my teenage rum...one of those i used to use by then in my efforts to mix up tropical drinks. I don`t use it anymore, it has purely nostalgic value to me. It`s not a good rum, overly sweet and cloying.The bottle is pretty though, i could use it as a soap dispenser:-)
Only gets a reasonable rating cos it's amazing with pineapple juice, otherwise one for the kids, and known to nauseate others! Ok in cocktails.... Hawaiian tropic anyone?
Nice touch with the coconut.
