Tempus Fugit Creme de Cacao a La Vanille Liqueur (700ml)

$74. 99
$899.88 Dozen
ABV: 24%
Tasting note: Made with Venezuelan cacao and Mexican vanilla and based on a 19th Century recipe. Pours a thick, glycerous translucent sienna brown with fat legs. Jam-packed with aromas redolent of fresh cocoa, vanilla bean and hazelnut chocolate; follows through with a luxurious cocoa / dark chocolate and subtle marzipan profile in an extraordinary thickened-cream delivery that raises the bar for the genre. Ends balanced, drier than the mid palate stage and medium long. Does Creme de Cacao get better than this? 24% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... this complex take on a staple liqueur is ruddy in the glass and flavorful with cocoa powder, almond, vanilla and a touch of hazelnut richness on the long finish. Viscous and slightly too thick for straight-up sipping, this is a tasty upgrade for cocktails. 95 points
