Review and Tasting


Sampled on 05/11/2013

Appearance:

Clear, deep red-mauve.

Aroma:

Subdued floral violet with faint spiced tobacco leaf and new leather.

Taste:

Very slightly sweet (this is a dry liqueur) with delicate spice. Floral notes are complex and tightly integrated with tobacco and peppery spice rather than forward.

Aftertaste:

Long, floral peppery finish. Very complex and far from the more usual sweet floral examples of crème de violette.
