Found 18th Mar 2014
Saw this in Aldi (Colne) earlier. Tastes as good as malibu for a fraction of the price or you could use as substitute for hawaiian tropic when sunning yourself on the beach!

What proof?



I think it is 20% alcohol.

Seems pretty good, though don't most supermarkets have a version of this kind of rum at this price? I can never tell if the 'awards' Aldi alcohol have really mean much

The wife loves this stuff & she's a "Malibu" expert, lol. heat

I like the Tesco one Kokomo it is £5.15, but the Asda copy is more expensive & really tastes nasty.

Normal price isn't it ?

No it's actually discounted. I can't remember the standard price, but remember seeing the sign last week.

It's really good my girlfriend regularly buys this. 21% so same strength as real Malibu (most of these fake malibus are between 15-19%) and tastes just as good.

The IWSC seems to be a legitimate "competition" with an established framework and methodology. I find that a lot of Aldi spirits are excellent. Their gin being a case in point, in a recent blind tasting in one of the national papers it beat Gordon's and many other well known brands. I've tried their Vodka and it is also good. In contrast the own brand spirits in the other "big four" are universally dreadful. I've drank the cocobay (it came with me to Glastonbury last year) and once you've popped in your favourite mixer, cola, pineapple, whatever it tastes identical to Malibu.

This "Maldibu" is fab, tastes just like Malibu! Bargain me thinks

B&M do one as well around the same price. Theirs is 22%.

Divvy

Yeah, I just wonder sometimes how certain of the other supermarket branded stuff would do in that competition, I wondered whether it was just because Aldi was the only one entering them into competitions etc. I agree that vodka, gin isn't that great in the others, but I think it's hard to mess up stuff like Schnapps and certain Rums.

I do like Aldi gin though, not too keen on the vodka though. I think Lidl vodka is the worst I've ever had haha

Is this offer on permanently or up was it just temp?

It's a temporary offer but standard price is only £5.15 so it's always well priced.

Can confirm this has passed the taste test in my house! Done it alongside Malibu and this seems smoother and has a more pleasant taste, bargain price too considering Malibu 70cl retails for £11-12+.

Kokomo is also a beach boys song and it reminded me of this camel toe song

Any one noticed this malibu as changed the taste.. And is only 15% I'm sure it used to be 17%

Goldierobo52 - I've been buying the Aldi coco bay version of Malibu for a while, and I too have noticed a difference in the taste. To be honest I can't stand the taste of it now. I'm really disappointed as it was such a good price!
