DonQ Coco Rum Tasting Notes

21% Alcohol. 42 Proof.

Aroma: Very little scent. Sugared.

Taste: Very sweet. Says natural coconut flavors on the bottle, but… tastes more artificially flavored to the taste buds. Even leaves bit of distasteful after taste. Thin. Not nearly as impressed with this flavoring as I have been with the base spirits of the DonQ Rum brand thus far.

Best conclusion for this flavoring; mix to get semblance of sweetened flavoring
while knowing the alcohol content might be exceedingly low. Borders upon liqueur factor at this point in my opinion. Many average liqueurs fall within 15 to 30 percent ABV (alcohol by volume). Rum, even flavored rum, generally speaking falls somewhere between 35 to 40 percent ABV with some higher.

Summertime means quick and easy cocktails that won’t bring on the buzz too fast. Throw on your favorite bikini and simply shake up this simple tropical Cover Up for easy, breezy sipping poolside.
