Luxardo Maraschino Liq.

Luxardo Maraschino Liq. 750ml       
Sku: 1877

Maraschino Luxardo is a classic. The typical straw coated bottle is by now a true icon on the mass consumption scenario. It is one of the very few liqueurs in the world produced by distillation. It is obtained from the marasca, a sour cherry variety exclusively cultivated by Luxardo. The distillate is allowed to mature for two years in Finnish ash vats (this wood does not lend its colour even after many years of maturing), and is then diluted and sugared.

Tasting notes
Colour: clear. Perfume: typical of marasca distillate, with an excellent intense aroma, fine and well amalgamated, without any aggressive note. Taste: smooth but sharp, a sweet liqueur unusual for the punch of the distillate, which can be clearly perceived in spite of the moderate alcohol content. A rounded taste and a surprisingly persistent aroma.

Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points (Mar 2012)
The nose is an unexpected, complex melange of aromas ranging from dried cherries to toasted nuts, cardamom, stone fruit pits, and pretty floral notes. The palate is delicate and balanced while generous.
 Wine Enthusiast 90 points (Dec 2007)
The bouquet is lovely, balanced, properly astringent, ripe and juicy with scents of cherry stone and cherry juice. The palate entry is decadently sweet and textured with vibrant tastes of cherry compote and cherry preserves at midpalate. The finish is svelte, moderately syrupy and downright delicious. An outstanding liqueur: use it in an Aviation Cocktail. P.P. (12/1/2007) 90-95
