Review and Tasting


Sampled on 17/09/2015

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma:

Bubblegum, candyfloss, light muscovado, honey, barley sugar and vanilla with orange blossom.

Taste:

Sweet, light muscovado, barley sugar, dark honey, orange marmalade, candyfloss, vanilla and bubblegum with black pepper and cinnamon spice.

Aftertaste:

Dark honey, light muscovado sugar, bubblegum and black pepper.

Overall:

Honey, bubblegum, candyfloss, muscovado and vanilla. What's not to like? It's also sweet, lightly syrupy and while it is labelled honey, honey it is arguably not the lead flavour. Although we like this liqueur, we're not sure how Irish it actually is.
