Clement Introduces Mahina Coco

     Martinique's Clement Rhums has introduced a new flavored rum, Mahina Coco.  This is an interesting second departure into flavored French style rhums.  Their original was the Creole Shrubb, an orange flavored expression that has been around of several years now.   

     "A bright French Caribbean coconut delicacy, Mahina Coco is crafted with luscious pieces of young coconut soused with Rhum Agricole, which brings a soft and sweet roundness of the tropics. Try Mahina Coco simply on ice, with pineapple juice, or in exotic island cocktails."

     Flavored rhums are not readily seen coming from the Agricole Rhum  producers, but this looks like it is a well thought out expression that has some real promise.  Like it 's sister expression Creole Shrubb, Mahina Coco it is not your ordinary flavored rhum.

     It’s based in rhum blanc agricole, giving it a complexity and authenticity to flavored rhum that is very hard to beat, with “luscious pieces of young coconut.”    Clement has taken an after dinner French Caribbean cocktail into our homes here in America.  It will cost you somewhere around $26.00, but as Clement says, "A sumptuous CREOLE LIQUOR with White Rhum and COCONUT flavor"
