Notes: A multinational blend of products make up this new créme (cream) liqueur. Coffee from various countries, créme from Holland, vodka from France.
First Impression: Subdued coffee notes with vanilla, spices, (mace, cinnamon?) at first, followed by other subtle notes (coconut?) with slight alkali tang balancing the sweetness. Only hints of alcohol- a subtle mix.
Appearance: Brown cream like a brown eggshell, on swirling leaves a even, somewhat thick coating on the glass.
Taste: Sweet, creamy/oily mouth feel nicely balanced coffee, cream and vanilla then a lingering pleasant spicy taste. Only mild alcohol aftertaste, smooth and sweet.
Drinks: Subtle addition to many drinks calling for a coffee liqueur and their proprietary drinks (formulated by Contemporary Cocktails, Inc.) were excellent.
Bottle: Dark brown (almost opaque) glass bottle cylindrical to sloping shoulder with graphic of Paris cafe. Gold neckwrap/collar.
Final Thoughts: A very drinkable coffee cream-type liqueur – much better than most with more subtle blending and spicing than many of its competitors.
Well worth a try (buy the 375 ml size first just to be sure if you like it); it’s smooth, flavorful and balanced.
