Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
Coffee liqueur made with cold brew Arabica coffee and Australian wheat-based vodka. Claims to use “half the sugar and ten times the coffee of old-world liqueurs.” And sure enough, it does drink more like coffee than your typical mass-market liqueur. The nose is pungent with dark roast coffee beans, and it’s much less sweet than even that lead-up would allude to — nutty and toasty, with a hint of gunpowder. The palate is bittersweet, with intense dark chocolate and significant coffee ground notes, giving it an almost chalky, grainy espresso character. The finish is cleaner, however, and lightly sweet but filled with secondary flavor notes — cherries and dates, coconut, and some vanilla at the end.
