Kummel Wolfschmidt Liqueur Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    Nose: Restrained compared to the Mentzendorff – lemon being the dominant aroma with caraway taking a back seat.

    Palate: In contrast to the nose, the caraway is more prominent with anise and hints of lemon sherbet in the background.

    Finish: Medium to long with the anise making it through to the very finish.

    Comment: An interesting contrast between nose and palate, the latter being where it really comes alive. The length is impressive – I can see why this is the choice of clubs around the country.

    Kummel not available in Australia so always stock up when visiting the UK. Great after dinner drink, alone or add an ice cube to two for a summer drink.

    Love it. I must be your best customer. I find it a perfect digestive after a meal. I drink it most days after dinner. Wolfschmitt is the only Kimmel to drink.

    If it is still the regimental digestive of the Coldstream Guards and the Cavalry it must be the best nightcap!!

    I just love it as a digestive or late evening tipple with ice sets me up in the right mood for a good nights sleep. Used to be a big fan of Marie Brizzard but Kummel is my favourite now

    I often find herbal liqueurs a little sickly but the hint of mintiness from the caraway cuts through it nicely and makes this drink really fresh way to cleanse the palate after a meal.

    love this ice cold left in freezer. It is addictive!

    A fantastic liqueur. Unique for its complex caraway, cumin and fennel flavours and ABV at 39%. As a bartender I enjoy adding this to cocktails. The classic Silver Bullet, and a cocktail I found which is a variation on a bourbon sour with pressed apple juice are both brilliant. One that I created involves London Dry Gin, dry sherry, honey water, angostura bitters and kümmel. If you have access to the relevant materials and ingredients, give them a go!

    A fantastic addition to my Austrian Goulash recipe:- 2kg Venison / Beef 50g flour 50g paprika 4 onions stock kummel seasoning Fry off meat and onions in large pan, add flour & paprika binding them together. Slowly add stock, stirring all the time. Season, add the kummel and leave to simmer until meat is tender (approx 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hours). Add more stock if required.....yum

    Kummel was the best selling liqueur in Britain before The Second World War.Supplies dried up as then it was made in the Baltic states.It was amazing how a best sellar like Kummel was then forgotton and many people have not even heard of it today. This is a great drink that I like very much.I drink it with no ice and in a very small liqueur glass. You must try it and find out why it sold so well.

    Enjoyed sipping this with ice at a very historic golf course. Could grow on me.

  • Moles Friend 17 April 2012

    My defences were raised when I saw this was made in the UK - however, they needed have been. This stuff tastes 'exactly' as I remember it 40 years ago.....chilled down and sipped slowly this is masterpiece in a glass. Fabulous.
