Review and Tasting
Sampled on 09/05/2019
Cardamom, zesty citrus, ginger and coriander.
Bittersweet and dilute, yet complex and with slightly astringent citrus acidity.
Blueberry/raspberry-like fruitiness emerges in the finish.
Distinctive and attractive colourful packaging and a wooden stopper points towards a luxury spirit, but in this case a “non-alcoholic free spirit”. It is not an unpleasant aperitif, but lacks body, dare we say alcohol. However, when mixed with tonic water, as recommended, Caleño does indeed make an enjoyable and refreshing long drink.
