This liquorice liqueur is made by the Pollio family at their farm in the heart of Italy's Sorrento peninsula. It is made by cold infusing liquorice from Calabria, flavouring with spices and sweetening with sugar and caramelised sugar. It is bottled unfiltered so should be shaken prior to opening.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 06/11/2011

Appearance

Thick black and oil-like in appearance with brown edges.

Aroma

Liquorice and burnt liquorice nose with subtle smoky and burning sugar aromas and a touch of meatiness, lemon zest and aniseed.

Taste

Powerfully liquorice flavoured palate which obviously has a lot of sugar yet is balanced by bitter tannins, woodiness and bitter burnt coffee flavours.

Aftertaste

Long liquorice finish which starts lightly smoked and fades to be pure liquorice.
