Default Strong Coconut Rum?

I haven't tried many rums, but I like Bacardi Coco. Would it be possible
to make a stronger (but still tasty) version of Bacardi Coco with
Bacardi 151? Also, is there a stronger retail coconut rum?

I don't see any reason you couldn't just take whatever rum you wanted
and add coconut flavoring. It's available at most large grocery stores
around me, and any good store that has baking supplies will have it.

Default Strong Coconut Rum?

My concern is whether or not it will taste better than Bacardi Coco. I
checked their site and it says that they don't simply add coconut flavor
to their regular rums.

Ah. You did ask if it was possible, not if it would be any good... I
have no direct experience there, since I'm not much of a fan of coconut
or rum. And of course, I'd expect them to say that, whether they did or
not. If you've got a few extra dollars, experiment. Go grab a bottle
of 151 and some coconut flavoring. And probably some vanilla as well.
Be gentle - a teaspoon of flavoring is probably sufficient for a liter.

But just get a bunch of glasses, filled with, say, a cup of rum in each.
Add some coconut (say, 1/4 tsp) and a lot less vanilla (say, a drop),
swirl it, cover it, and taste it a few hours (just in case there's some
value in letting it sit and stabilize) or a few minutes later. Modify
your quantities, try in the next glass. You should have a either a
reasonable recipe or an understanding of why not by the end of the day.

Oh, and if you think you taste some subtle under-flavors in the Coco,
feel free to toss a drop in. Chocolate? Almond? Lemon? Pineapple?
All are available as flavor extracts. Again, be very gentle in your
first guess.

And in the end, even if it's not a perfect match, it's _your_ recipe,
and that's worth something.

Default Strong Coconut Rum?

Just to add to your good taste, my parner and I are innkeepers on Killington
Mountain, and we have prepared a delicious tropical recipe, known as Goombay
Smash. You can find us on our website at www.goombaysmash.org where it can
be purchased as a concentrate. One pint of the pure fruit concentrate will
make a gallon of strong drink, add 5 pints of water and 2 pints (or more) of
rum, and float some 151 proof on top of each individual drink. Makes Bacardi
delicous.
