Luxardo Maraschino Cherry Liqueur (700ml)

$69. 99 Bottle
$839.88 Dozen
ABV: 32%

A new arrival from Luxardo, a family owned company founded in 1821. This liqueur is produced by distilling Marasca cherries before maturation in unconventional Finnish ash casks.

Tasting Notes: Very viscous water like colour with watery hue with tenacious cling to the glass. A curious nose offers an enormously perfumed aroma as much akin to the spice rack in mama's pantry than a cherry liqueur though wonderfully appealing regardless. Penetrating aromas of cherry juice over more subtle notes of fennel, spearmint, anise, sour dough bread and the faintest hint of glace cherry. Wonderful lift. The thick, glycerous palate offers decadently rich flavours of sweet ripe cherry above marzipan and a layer of sweet spice. Silky throughout and very generously textured. Perfect balance. Clean finish. Exceptionally long aftertaste of cherry confectionary and marzipan. World class. 32.0% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews....
The bouquet is lovely, balanced, properly astringent, ripe and juicy with scents of cherry stone and cherry juice. The palate entry is decadently sweet and textured with vibrant tastes of cherry compote and cherry preserves at midpalate. The finish is svelte, moderately syrupy and downright delicious. An outstanding liqueur: use it in an Aviation Cocktail. - P.P. (12/1/2007) -
