Review and Tasting


Sampled on 20/12/2014

Appearance:

Clear, dark burgundy red. (If your sample has the merest hint of orange/brown then your bottle has been open too long and your liqueur is oxidized. Buy a replacement and use more frequently.)

Aroma:

Rich blackcurrant and chocolaty vanilla with rich raspberry/cherry yoghurt and rum 'n' raison.

Taste:

Rich flavours of raspberry fool, chocolate truffle, honey, vanilla, blackcurrant jam, cherry jam, sloe and damson with a hint of raisins and stewed prunes.

Aftertaste:

Warm, velvety, vanilla and black raspberry fruit. Overall: More rounded and not as upfront tart fruit as a typical crème de cassis, framboise or mûre, when compared the effect of the addition of vanilla and honey flavours are obvious.
