The palate offers more than just honey: There is wood, vanilla, lavender, and notable lemon character as the finish fades away. Charcoal touches come on as the finish disappears completely. As honey liqueurs go, this has a lot going on, and that’s, as they say, a good thing.
I grabbed a bottle over the weekend and, I have to say, it’s very different in a good way. I like it.
It doesn’t strike me as a liqueur though. Maybe because it’s supposed to be served chilled but I keep the bottle on my bar and have been drinking it at room temperature. Maybe because I’m not a sophisticated drinker. Still, no complaints. It’s 70 proof, which I’m not thrilled about. I wish they’d have stuck with 80, but it’s different enough and enjoyable enough that it gets a pass.
I’ll buy it again. No doubt about that.
