Review and Tasting

Sampled before 1st May 2011

Appearance

Very light in colour when compared to British sloe gin liqueurs.

Aroma

This lightness is reflected in the subtle nose and palate.

Taste

At just 70grams of sugar, this falls 30 grams per litre below the minimum to be labelled a liqueur but sugar amplifies flavour so when evaluated as a standalone product it is a tad thin, slightly on the bitter side and lacking rich berry notes.

Aftertaste

However, for cocktail use I guess you could always add more sweetness.
