Nose: very pure fresh cut ginger initially, then some faint marzipan and dark gingerbread; later, more candied ginger aromas and creamy vanilla ice cream, with faint notes of apple, dessicated coconut and perfumey fresh flowers.
Palate: Medium-weight. Sweet and mouthcoating, but never heavy or sickly, and with pervasive honeyed ginger & vanilla notes lightened by flashes of intense, clean, fresh raw ginger character.
Finish: Decent length and remains sweet with ginger snap flavours.
Comment: An extremely well-balanced liqueur, with rewarding intensity of flavour while still elegant and fresh on the palate. Very moreish.
