I only go for bitter drinkers. That's bitter DRINKERS and BITTER drinkers.

Soft drinks like Malibu. No.

Hahahaha! Seriously?

I mean, I like a bit of Malibu but I wouldn't deign to call it rum!

Could be worse though, he could be a Baileys drinker..............

Give him a couple of dates, he might be redeeemable.

Teach him the ways of a proper rum adventure.

Wray and Nephew overproof might be a step too far though.

My husband drank Malibu and coke when I met him and he turned out ok. He doesn't drink much these days other than the odd beer, which means I get to booze it up real nice when we go out.

I'd line up the rums and say 'watch and learn' (or something witty: you'll come up with something😉)

If he was hot and seemed otherwise worthy of your attention.

Are you sure he wasn't just winding you up?

Kraken spiced Rum is a good middle ground. Smooth without being... watered down.

I'd take it upon myself to educate them. That way even if it didn't work out I would feel I'd done my bit for society and the next woman who he came across. grin

As a teen thinking I was cool I drank rather a substantial amount of Malibu and vomited profusely. Can't touch the stuff and don't trust anyone who can! Definitely wouldn't call it rum though...

I feel it's your civic duty to take him out (especially if he's hot) and educate him in the ways of rum. Proper rum - is Malibu even rum anyway? Tastes like liquefied bounty bars!

BillSykesDog Sat 11-Jun-16 00:54:00

LTB before you even starts. I bet he thinks pot noodles are pasta and eats rustlers.

My missus put a four pack of WKD in our fridge last week. I was mortified.

x2boys Sat 11-Jun-16 01:03:19

Well i,m feeling a bit pissed so all goodgrin !

FedupofbeingtoldIcantusemyname Sat 11-Jun-16 01:22:03

Give him a chance, he is only young after all grin

Educate him on the joys of real rum, he will thank you for it in the long rum (see what I did there!!)

Some people haven't had the benefit of a real rum education! If you don't teach him who will??!!

Give him a chance and some proper rum

drools at the memory of heady days with wray and nephew

NuggetofPurestGreen Sat 11-Jun-16 01:24:54

I'd love some rum now. Haven't had it in years! Do they have it in lidl??
