Product of: Barbados
A liqueur sweetened with sugar cane, its flavour comes from an infusion of botanicals including lime peel, almonds and cloves. Developed by Sir John Taylor Mountjoy of Bridgetown, Barbados in 1890, the label depicts two gold medals, one of which was won in 1923 at a Bajan agricultural exhibition.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 17/01/2016
Clear, amber with very slight green tinge.
Candied lime zest with pronounced clove and more subtle nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom and lemon thyme. Faint note of old-fashioned oil paint.
Sweet, syrupy, candied lime zest with supporting clove spice.
Lime zest and lime cordial with sharp zesty lime acidity.
This Bajan liqueur is a good alternative to sugar for sweetening cocktails with flavours of candied lime zest and clove.
