Tasting Notes by numen
Color: very pale yellow-green, similar to light green tea mixed with water.
Nose: heavy and strong, bitter orange and dark chocolate liqueur. Anise, all-spice, clove, and slightly spicy cinnamon.
Palate: Entry is pleasantly oily, with a stronger emphasis on the bitter-overripe orange and spice.
Finish: quickly returns to unsweetened orange mixed with chocolate liqueur, like a more alcoholic and spicier gran marnier. Well put together. Avoids being too cloying, though not the sort of stuff that one would just quaff. The bitterness keeps it going and probably opens a few doors for those looking to create some interesting mixed drinks.
