GSN Review: Bacardi Coquito Coconut Cream Liqueur

Bacardi recently launched its own take on a Puerto Rican Christmas beverage for its namesake rum brand. Coquito, meaning “Little Coconut” in Spanish, is a traditional Christmas drink sometimes referred to in the US as Puerto Rican eggnog. Bacardi released Coquito as a limited-edition for the winter festive season. Coquito combines Bacardi white rum with toasted spices, coconut cream, vanilla and cinnamon.

Bacardi Coquito Coconut Cream Liqueur (13% ABV)
Visual: Slightly gold cream.
Nose: An oddly eggy nose intertwined with heavy vanilla, cinnamon and coconut.
Taste: A grainy liquid flan or custard-like flavor mouthfeel, with more of the vanilla and cinnamon overlying the rum.
Finish: Long and very much in the boozy dessert category.
Overall: Not nearly as good as a fresh Coquito, this will do in a pinch. Of course, homemade eggnog is alos better than store bought. But, this is a good entry level product to those who are interested in trying something new.
GSN Rating: B-
