Product of: Italy
Launched in May 2013, as the name suggests this is a traditional sambuca, but with an added mint flavour. Luxardo Mint has a vibrant light blue colour.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 12/05/2013
Clear, turquois blue (colouring agent E131). Louches (turns milky) with water.
Aniseed and liquorice dominate with peppermint (Fisherman’s Friends meet Extra Strong Mints).
Overpowering aniseed and mint. Flavours are so strong that aggressive on the tongue.
Long fresh breath spearmint and aniseed finish with lingering mint and liquorice. Just as the label promises, “sambuca with mint”.
