    Review and Tasting

    Sampled on 17/09/2015

    Appearance

    Clear, golden amber.

    Aroma

    Bubblegum, candyfloss, light muscovado, honey, barley sugar and vanilla with orange blossom.

    Taste

    Sweet, light muscovado, barley sugar, dark honey, orange marmalade, candyfloss, vanilla and bubblegum with black pepper and cinnamon spice.

    Aftertaste

    Dark honey, light muscovado sugar, bubblegum and black pepper.

    Overall

    Honey, bubblegum, candyfloss, muscovado and vanilla. What’s not to like? It’s also sweet, lightly syrupy and while it is labelled honey, honey it is arguably not the lead flavour. Although we like this liqueur, we’re not sure how Irish it actually is.
