Riserva Liqueur

Category: Nut Liqueur

Date Tasted:
Country: Italy
Alcohol: 40%
Clear golden amber color. Nutty, grainy aromas and flavors of frosted almond cookie, cherry brandy and dried fruit, honeyed grain and heather, and caramelized nuts with a silky, bright, moderately sweet medium body and a warming, engaging, medium-long minerals, moss and meadow, and pepper finish. An interesting Scotch whisky based nut liqueur with an elegant edge.

Nut Liqueur

Nut liqueurs have been flavored with the addition of hazelnuts, almonds, pecans and other nuts, usually along with other spices. Most are brown or amber in color; some are dry, some sweet. They are normally in the 18% to 25% alcohol range and are served neat as after-dinner liqueurs.
