Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/03/2017

Appearance

Clear, pale golden.

Aroma

Zesty lime and lime cordial-like with a hint of cinnamon, cardamon and white pepper spice.

Taste

Slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Lime zest citrus sourness and acidity balances honeyed sweetness with enlivening spice, and almost aniseed/minty freshness.

Aftertaste

Sweet and sour zesty lime and spice finish.

Overall

Now better-known for syrups, this spicy lime liqueur is the "Original" product by Monin. It cries out for use in a Gimlet.
