Appearance

Clear, amber with very slight green tinge.

Aroma

Candied lime zest with pronounced clove and more subtle nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom and lemon thyme. Faint note of old-fashioned oil paint.

Taste

Sweet, syrupy, candied lime zest with supporting clove spice.

Aftertaste

Lime zest and lime cordial with sharp zesty lime acidity.

Overall

This Bajan liqueur is a good alternative to sugar for sweetening cocktails with flavours of candied lime zest and clove.
