Tasting Notes

"Pale yellow in color, John D. Taylor's Velvet Falernum smells sweet, and strongly of cloves and lime juice. On the palate, it's rich and thick, leaving a coating of slightly nutty, spiced, sugary flavor. A hint of lime prevents it from being excessively sweet, but this is a liqueur made to be mixed in cocktails like the Corn 'n' Oil rather than sipped on its own."
