Manifest is then “double-barrelled matured in both small and large German and American oak casks for over a year, to intensify flavours.” It contains around 10% less caramelised sugar than original Jägermeister.
Described by Jägermeister as “the world’s first super-premium herbal liqueur”, Jägermeister Manifest launched in February 2017. Manifest is best appreciated neat and slightly chilled (6-8˚C / 42-46˚F).
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 28/02/2017
Clear, deep amber (but not as dark as original Jägermeister).
Predominantly pine, aniseed and caramel with menthol and complex herbal scents.
Piney (more than oak) and enlivening spice, smoothed by rich caramel, vanilla and liquorice, with dried fruit and very complex rooty herbal notes.
Herbal (particularly thyme), piney with subtle aniseed and menthol freshness.
Rounder and more complex than original Jägermeister, Manifest sits squarely alongside, and competes with, the very best of the traditional Italian amari. However, Manifest’s flavour remains identifiable as part of the Jägermeister family.
