Review and Tasting

Sampled on 06/01/2013


Clear, bronze with burnished bronze glints.


Smells like fortified honey – basically it is.


Thick and syrupy but sprity rather than overly sweet. Thick set honey, a touch of vanilla, nutmeg, cocoa powder, clove, honey cake and cigar box.


Lingering honey and nutmeg spice. A fabulous liqueur for a winter's night. Great in cocktails.
