Default Adding coconut flavour / aroma?

I've made a pineapple mead that essentially has finished almost down to 1.000 because I was away for a period and forgot about it.

So it will have very little pineapple left to it; I suppose I could sorbate it and add some pineapple juice back to it, to taste.

Now if I wanted to impart a coconut bit to it as well, suggestions on that at the 'finishing' stage?

Primary: Dunkelweizen
Secondary: BrewHouse IPA
Forgotten about: Samichlaus
Keg: Special Bitter
Keg 2: American Barleywine

I've used coconut a couple times. I bought unsweetened coconut and toasted it in the oven.

Hopheader, are you sure there's no pineapple flavor left? I know it is a delicate aroma but just because it finished dry doesn't mean the flavor is gone. Have you tasted it, if so what does it taste like?
