A nicely done yogurt liqueur very much like a light form of advocaat and quite mixable.
Notes: Bols is widely noted for one of the larger and better portfolios of liqueurs offered worldwide. They include over 34 different liqueurs and also have a couple of relatively new (to the US market anyway) Genevers a younger version unaged version and a slightly older barrel aged version.
This is their newest offering and it is a distinct departure from their usual rainbow of colors and flavors but a welcome addition none the less !
Appearance: White, milk like appearance, on swirling reminds us of kefir or egg nog in consistency
First Impression: Kind of a cross between a very mild egg nog and kefir, with a somewhat sweetish and spicy smell to it. Almost like a very bland type of advoaat.
Taste:Very mild,slightly spicy and interesting. Very much like a very light advocaat with just a touch of sweet sour yogurt thrown in.
Drinks: Bols has a long list of potential cocktails for this particular liqueur on their website . Personally I find it quite useful along with Hendricks Gin to make a Lassi with
Bottle: Fairly typical shape for a Bols liqueur bottle but that is where the similarities end – unlike their other glass bottles this bottle is is not clear , it is coated with an opaque covering that gives the visual impression of unfired white/cream (yogurt) colored clay – in color, outward appearance, and to some limited degree, texture.
Other: One of the advantages of this liqueur is having a (at least relatively) stable yogurt product in your bar
Final Thoughts: An interesting new liqueur to play with and add to you liquor cabinet or bar. Recommended !
