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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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....
I really like this rum liqueur. It is very sweet and you can taste the orange.
We have only purchased a small bottle for tasting, but I have already ordered a full bottle.
Fantastic as an after dinner snifter.
Would also make a fun substitute for curaçao in a mixed drink.
