Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - The most famous of coffee liqueurs, this spirit shows an intense nose of ground espresso, dark chocolate, toasted sugar cane, and vanilla cordial. The palate shows notable sweetness but remains balanced by the bitter torrefaction elements of the coffee and cocoa.
- 2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge (Very Good, Strong Recommendation) (Great Value) (Apr 2019)
Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Look for a sweet coffee-like aroma touched with vanilla. The concentrated, palate-coating flavor suggests very sweet coffee laced with cocoa and brown sugar richness, plus faint baking spice on the exit. Recommended for mixing into coffee or cocktails.
