Tasty, but not quite great
It is just a flavoured Rum, but probably the best coconut flavoured rum out there. It is a total winner on crushed ice with a bit of lime. The bottle never last long...
I REALLY like the Clement Creole Shrubb, so I was very excited to try the Clement Creole Coconut. It has a good base flavor, but it also includes another flavor which seems like powdered sugar with pineapple (that I'm not so fond of). This was also weak at only 18%abv (the Creole Shrubb is 40%).
As far as coconut rums go, I much prefer the Koloa Kaua'i, which is my favorite (as of this review).
Glasklar mit opalisierenden Reflektionen im Glas.
In der Nase wie ein Kokosnuss Riegel einer bekannten Marke der schon seit Stunden an der Sonne liegt.
Am Gaumen süss wie man es von einem Liqueur zu erwarten hat. Kokos, Kokos und noch mehr Kokos.
Im Abgang sehr nach Kokos und zurück bleibt ein Nachgeschmack wie beim künstlichem Süssstoff.
Nicht zum pur geniessen, für leckere Drinks an der Tiki-Bar. Ich brauche Ihn zum kochen.
Crystal clear with opalescent reflections in the glass.
In the nose like a coconut bar of a well-known brand that has been lying in the sun for hours.
Sweet on the palate as one would expect from a liqueur. Coconut, coconut and even more coconut.
In the finish very much like coconut and back there is an aftertaste like artificial sweetener.
Not for pure enjoyment, for tasty drinks at the Tiki-Bar. I need it to cook.
I wasn't able to make a single drink with this that I didn't toss down the drain 10 seconds after I finished mixing it. Horribly artificial and nasty. would rate 0/10 if I could. I don't want to know what malibu tastes like if people think this tastes much better.
Visited the Clement distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Self guided distillery tour ended with an open tasting bar. Clement Mahina Coco was priced at EUR 11 per bottle at the distillery. Nice bottle and label design. Traditional sweet Rhum Agricole flavors complemented with mild grass, some florals and plenty of coconut to the nose and palate. Very mild burn at the end. Rhum Agricole fan boys can easily add 2 points to my score.
To start with it is difficult to compare flavored rums with pure rums. The flavored rums somehow constitue their own distinct category. So turning to the Clement Cocont liqueur on a straight test basis: nose and palate are clearly dominated by coconat flavor but I felt also getting a hint of the rhum agricole inside. So in the distance some grass was present. Very nice is the finish which is not strong at all and the coconut flavor is present in the aftertaste for quite a long time. So this is an excellent alternative for hot summer days. I rate this liqueur with a "8" because in my opinion it is not usual that a liqueur that has been desinged primarily for coctail mixing purposes stands that well on its own.
