Review and Tasting


Sampled on 22/01/2016

Appearance:

Clear, marigold yellow with hints of green.

Aroma:

Mocha coffee and dark chocolate with angelica, spruce needles, peppermint, aniseed and tarragon.

Taste:

Mellow, honeyed sweetness and minty freshness with rootyness, zesty citrus and pine needles.

Aftertaste:

Incredibly fresh breath finish. Peppermint, spearmint, mocha coffee, lime zest, gentian, anise and cracked black pepper.

Overall:

One of the great classic liqueurs, Yellow Chartreuse has a huge, enveloping, honey sweet and minty fresh palate with herbal complexity.
