Review and Tasting
Sampled on 30/09/2019
Cloudy/hazy, pale milky yellow. (Sample bottle best before Mar/21)
Horsehair, menthol and camphor (as promised on the label). There's certainly a whiff of stables to this cordial.
Acidic with tart citrus notes followed by assertive white pepper spice.
Long acidic white pepper finish.
A smell of stables leads to an acidic palate with enlivening white pepper. Intended as a cocktail ingredient and sampled diluted with water. Beware of the very high (pH 1.8) level of acidity in this cordial.
