Bärenjäger is sold in a very distinctive bottle with a plastic beehive-shaped cap. (Original bottles came wrapped woven jacket with a bee lapel badge.)

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 06/01/2013

Appearance:

Clear, bronze with burnished bronze glints.

Aroma:

Smells like fortified honey – basically it is.

Taste:

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.

Aftertaste:

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