Review and Tasting

Clear, light golden amber.
Spice is very apparent with fragrant vegetal chile pepper (not cracked black pepper). Subtle aromas of sweetcorn, caramel and green bell pepper.
A mellow, delicately sweet caramel entry precludes growing capsaicin heat and bite. But this liqueur is far from fiery and with the spice comes a pleasing flavours of black tea leaves, vanilla and sweet yellow bell pepper.
Long finishing with lingering chili heat.
This liqueur delivers well-judged assertive but not fiery chili heat with attractive vegetal black tea leaves-like flavour.
