NOTHING BEATS AN ORIGINAL
Nothing beats an original. But Malibu isn’t just an original, it’s sunshine in a bottle with a smooth fresh flavor. That’s why it’s the world’s best-selling coconut flavored Caribbean rum.
Ingredients: Caribbean rum (molasses/sugarcane distillate), water, sugar, flavouring (with coconut extract)
Color: Crystal-clear; slightly more viscous-looking than water, but essentially the same
Nose: Sweet coconut, pineapple and banana, none of which are necessarily natural but all of which are mouth-watering in their own way
Palate: Sweet and viscous, almost syrupy, with sweet coconut and tropical fruit notes as well as vanilla and rock candy; slightly tangy and fruity on the finish, with barely any alcoholic heat
Finish: There’s not much sticking around in the way of flavor—there’s a hint of coconut and pineapple—but the sugar lingers on the teeth for quite a while.
