This reduced sugar version of Lejay’s 20% alc./vol. crème de cassis was developed in 2013 specifically for the U.S. market. Made using traditional Noir de Bourgogne (55%) and Black Down (45%) varieties of blackcurrant, it contains 450 grams of sugar per litre.

Avaliação e degustação


Experimentado em 18/04/2014

Aparência:

Clear, deep (almost opaque) maroon red.

Aroma:

Very intense ripe blackberry fruit and blackberry jam. A small amount of water is added to the blend to bring the strength down to 18% alc./vol. and this dilution appears to open up and so intensify the nose.

Sabor:

Rich and fruit driven with blackcurrant flavours exploding in the mouth. Very slightly sharp with the intensity of the fruit not quite balanced by the sugar.

Aftertaste:

Long, tongue coating tart jammy bramble fruit.

No geral:

“Lejay Crème de Cassis de Dijon has a little less sugar and a small amount of added water, so making it less rich and syrupy with more intense tartness and a more open expressive aroma. It is perfectly suited to cocktails.”
