Review and Tasting
Sampled on 26/09/2018
Clear, deep tawny brown.
Heavily roasted, lightly burnt coffee beans, liquorice, spice, orange and stone fruit.
Bittersweet and moderately spicy with pronounced heavily roasted coffee, herbaceous and herbal complexity, liquorice, vanilla and sweet orange.
Dry, lightly bitter tannins, heavily roasted coffee. Lingering rooty bitterness, liquorice and burnt coffee.
In effect, this combines two liqueurs in one – a coffee liqueur and an amaro, so it's a coffee liqueur but with rooty bitterness, herbal complexity and sweet citrusy notes.
