Brinley Gold (Shipwreck) Coconut Rum

brinleygold_shipwreck_coconut750__93962.1405433484.1280.1280If you read other reviews of Shipwreck Coconut Rum, they almost invariably start with the same idea: We were leery because of Malibu. Don’t get me wrong – I can take Malibu. Yes, it smells (and tastes) of sun tan lotion, but so what if I think that?! But, really – Shipwreck? A whole new level. From the texture to the taste, this lives up to the “Gold” in it’s name.

I haven’t mastered it in cocktails yet, namely because I can’t seem to get past drinking it by itself, but I’m sure I’ll get there.
