Liqueur- White Peach Schnapps
White Peach Schnapps
Hiram Walker, Pernod Ricard USA , Purchase, New York
PROOF: 30 (15%)
TYPE: Liqueur, Fruit
PRICE: $12.00 750 ML
Note:This new "Schnapps" as Hiram Walker refers to their liqueurs as, is part of a over 40 flavors or variety portfolio of flavored liqueurs that form the backbone of many cocktail books that specialize in multicolored sweet drinks with ridiculous and usually sophomorically suggestive names.
Appearance: A light transparent pink/peach in the bottle more or less colorless in a glass. On swirling, leaves a oily even coat on the glass which then thickens as it slides back on itself, very rapidly, and continues to do so rather than form legs more of a oil or suspension than a liqueur.
First Impression: Light but resinous plastic candy smell to it. I can't honestly detect much blueberry, I can detect a fair amount of citric acid, grape,and some sort of citrus along with a melon.
Taste: Thick body and entry to it. Syrup like with a heavy "peach" taste to it. Imagine taking the syrup fruit in a can comes in and dumping some chemical peach perfume into it and lots of corn syrup.
Drinks: This is not something I would put in a serious drink!
Bottle: Clear glass more-or-less standard Hiram Walker Bottle with screwcap closure.
Final Thoughts: Too sweet and thick to be anything like what it claims to be. This stuff tastes like a jello peach nightmare, but infinitely sweeter with a more pronounced chemical tang. A little thicker and this stuff could be mistaken for shampoo.
