Created by Arjun Haszardin the town of Dunedin, New Zealand, Quick Brown Fox liqueur is flavoured with a blend of hand-roasted coffee from three organic coffee farms "and a dash of cinnamon." The base alcohol is derived from Australian wheat grain.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 01/10/2019
Slight haze (but almost opaque), deep chestnut brown. (sample bottle 0081, batch 0121)
Freshly roasted coffee beans and faint treacle.
Strong cold brew coffee with light nuttiness and just enough sweetness to balance natural bitterness. Cinnamon flavour (part of the recipe) is evident but only if you look for it – this is far from being cinnamon-spiced.
Long finish with chocolate notes emerging.
Low in alc./vol. strength compared to other coffee liqueurs and noticeably thinner on the palate as a result. However, the coffee flavour is very good with delicate nut, chocolate and cinnamon notes, and the sugar balance is spot on.
