Malibu Black Caribbean Rum with Coconut Liqueur
Lance J. Mayhew

Rum comes in many flavors and incarnations, coconut being one of the most popular of the flavored rums. Unfortunately, most coconut flavored rums have a strong artificial flavor or lack a true undertone of good quality rum. Luckily, Malibu Black has rectified that with a coconut flavored rum that will not only appeal to coconut flavored rum enthusiasts but also to true rum purists. The fact is, Malibu Black is a fantastic product that is extremely versatile and an easy mixer.

Nose

Malibu Black features an aroma of freshly cracked coconuts with undertones of Carribean rum, Madagascar vanilla and warm caramel. Nosing Malibu Black is reminiscent of sitting on white sand Caribbean beaches with a Maliby Storm cocktail in hand, watching the sea and relaxing. Its almost a mini-Caribbean vacation in a glass.

Body & Palate

Malibu Black has a rich, warm mouthfeel without being cloyingly sweet as many rums can be. This unique twist on Caribbean rum has a pleasingly dry coconut note, think freshly made macaroons with rich rums notes of vanilla and caramel with just a hint of cinnamon. At 70 proof, Malibu Black will both mix well into your favorite rum drink or try it on its own, perhaps on the rocks with a squeeze of lime for a delicious treat.

Finish

Malibu Black has a refreshingly dry finish. Rather than coating the mouth with sugar as so many flavored rums are apt to do, Malibu Black slips off the palate leaving just a hint of coconut lingering, enticing you back for more.

In sum, Malibu Black is simply the best flavored rum on the market and the only choice for an authentic coconut flavored rum. Its perfect for enjoying anytime, anywhere and makes an essential addition to your liquor cabinet or bar.
