Very light in colour when compared to British sloe gin liqueurs.
This lightness is reflected in the subtle nose and palate.
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.
However, for cocktail use I guess you could always add more sweetness.
