Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/04/2016

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Caraway, cumin, fennel, light white pepper and freshly cut grass.

Taste

Much drier and lighter in style than lesser, comparatively syrupy kümmels, Helbing’s caraway flavour is also more complex and restrained. Light white pepper spice and spearmint-like freshness.

Aftertaste

Long lingering, yet delicate caraway. Freshening.

Overall

More of an eau-de-vie Kümmel, Helbing lacks the syrupy sweetness common to many other Kümmel liqueurs and its complex caraway notes are comparatively delicate.
