Luxardo Alkermes Liqueur (500ml)
$44. 99 Bottle
A classic Luxardo recipe, Alkermes contains cinnamon, vanilla, cardamom, cloves, cochineal and rose water. Brilliant red in colour, its gently spicy and rich aroma is traditionally used to enhance puddings and other desserts. Sought after by Italian foodies looking for that 'authentic' touch. Tasting note: Eye catching, bright strawberry red. Very gently bittersweet with cherry juice, marzipan, herb and sweet spice aromas evident. Creamy texture shows little spirit backbone and is borderline cloying with a broad, flabby, middle weighted profile featuring marzipan, clove and vanilla flavours. Turns almost imperceptibly bitter to finish - not enough to redeem the mid palate stage which is simply overly confected. 27%Alc./Vol.
