Replaces very well Cointreau or Grand Manier, even for the better! Can be used in cocktails like Mai Tai and many others. A bit too sweet for my taste to drink it "straight" but I'm not too much of a sweet tooth anyway, still the girls all seem to like it a lot ;)

This is the only choice if you want to make a great mai tai, and is extremely sippable on its own. Once you've had this you will never think about buying Pyrat rum again.

Reading some of the reviews here, there seems to be some confusion over what Creole Shrubb is and how to use it. While I suppose some might drink it straight over ice, Creole Shrubb really shines best as a component in more sophisticated cocktails. Far more complex and nuanced than Grand Marnier, Creole Shrubb uses an agricole base instead of neutral spirits. The underlying grassy notes, combined with the additional spices make this an indispensable component in well rounded drinks.

I wasn't expecting to like this much, as I thought Clement rum was too dry to go with orange. I was wrong!

This has a very creamy syrupy texture, with a super sweet orange flavor! Borderline too sweet, though I admit I have a sweet tooth and I REALLY like it! In fact, I much prefer this to the Pyrat XO, the Pyrat 1623, and the Santa Teresa Orange.

Although this is really more of a liqueur than a rum, it's orange liqueur done right, and you will really like it if you're in the mood for a sweet treat!

The people who make this call it Orange Liqueur, not rum, and yet here it sits on a rum website. Probably because it's made with rum. Be that as it may, it's really tasty on its own, or with ice, and certainly in Tiki cocktails.

As a "shrub" in the vintage sense rather than the new vinegar syrups of today, this stuff is delicious. Great orange flavor, not heavy sugared or cloying. Just a smooth clean flavor with the finish of agricole rhum.

At the risk of drawing ire from follow Grand Marnier devotees, I must say that I find this smoother, better tasting and longer lasting than my former favorite orange-infused beverage. It has also replaced GM as an ingredient in our desserts like creme brulee, mousse and cashew toffee.

Great product, can be used to sub orange liqueur in cocktails, it´s great in a Mai Tai for example.

an excellent mixer with orange...(maybe a little cocoa liqueur)...for an orange bomb...sweet orange, not subtle just straight up nice...relax yourself and have a large one....

Having read the positive reviews I was anxious to try this one in its most natural form, and it more than met my expectations. Wonderful orange flavor, nice level of sweetness, and has a pretty smooth finish. I can see why this would be a good one to use in cocktails, but it certainly also stands up by itself.

Was lovely as a quick shooter. .. decent afterburn and lovely subtle taste of orange ..

First off: This is rum as much as Grand Marnier is Cognac.

It tastes a lot like Grand Marnier but smoother and lighter.

I can also see sipping this at Christmas, though Stroh 80 would do a better job of lighting the pudding.
lovely zesty orange nose.
taste still a little sweet but it is a liqueur and when mixing care is needed with a sour lest it be overwhelmed
Beginning to really like it on its own

I would not really classify it as rum, it is pretty much an orange liquor..but it is absolutely delicious and it is good when you want to add a bit of variety to your rum drinking habit. Absolutely recommended.

Elegant and great spiciness but in my opinion it's too sweet. Lot of orange zest, sugarcane, molasses, christmas spices and a lot of sweetness.

If you need something sweet and orange, this is it. Sweeter replacement for something like Dry Curacao

Tout le plaisir du rhum et de l’orange : très doux (très sucré), rond et suave, il se boit facilement (trop même)

Had this as part of a Rhum Clement product range sampler and was very impressed. The use of aged (I assume?) agricole as opposed to brandy adds a subtle twist. Not too cloying if sipping solo as a digestif as well

jemný lahodný rumový moučník, v domacím báru bude mít své místo v popředí

This is a fantastic find and stands in admirably where the recipe calls for curacao, Grand Marnier, Cointreau or Triple Sec. It brings with it the agricole cut grass crispness and the strong zeal of orange zest. Our cracking Mai Tai of choice right now is, Smith & Cross Navy strength, Plantation Double aged Dark and Créole Shrubb with three fresh squeezed limes and home made orgeat.

Friend offered it in Martinique in a planteur and it was great. Made for ladies or to be enjoyed as a dessert. Sweetness with the grass and sucre de canne flavours. Very good!

Visited the Clement distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Self guided distillery tour ended with an open tasting bar. Clement Shrubb was priced at EUR 12 per bottle at the distillery. Shrubb is the traditional Christmas drink at the island. Nice bottle and label design. Traditional sweet Rhum Agricole flavors complemented with mild grass, some florals and plenty of citrus notes (mainly orange) to the nose and palate. Very mild burn at the end. Rhum Agricole fan boys can easily add 2 points to my score.

That's (I assume) the reason most people are comparing this Grand Marnier, but make no mistake: Creole Shrubb is superior! Sweet, but not cloying. Broad, yet complex. Can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks and is an absolute star in cocktails! Intense orange zest is present all the way through, with a mixture of spices adding more to the depth of the liqueur than any particular flavor. All of this is lent marvelous support by the agricole backbone. This is my goto orange liqueur, it just rocks!

Sugar cane Grand Marnier like liquor. Super sweet and honest orange flavor lingers. Tried it in an old fashion. Not bad I must say.
