Said to be the first Ouzo ever created, Typnaboy was founded by Nikolaos Katsaros in 1856. It is based on spirit made by the distillation of grape skins left after pressing to extract juice for wine production.
Sampled on 04/07/2011
Crystal clear. Only a very faint cloudy louche with the addition of approx 20% water.
Clean nose is perhaps more aniseed than liquorice.
Aniseed is also prominent on the slightly sweet liquorice palate.
The liquorice finish is dryer than the palate. Overall, more one dimensional and a less pronounced flavour than other ouzos sampled. We found the finish slightly unpleasant.
Closure: Screw / Stelvin cap
