Evaluate: Maraska Nocelino Chocolate Inexperienced Walnut Liqueur

Croatia’s Maraska, greatest identified for its Slivovitz but in addition the producer of my #1 maraschino liqueur, has dropped a barely odd new product which takes a distillate of macerated inexperienced walnuts and infuses it with pure chocolate. Nocelino Chocolate contains no synthetic coloring or flavorings and can be utilized by itself or instead of one other chocolate liqueur in your favourite cocktail. Maraska additionally suggests making an attempt it in lieu of sugar syrup in cocktails just like the Outdated Original.

That is definitively a departure from conventional chocolate liqueurs, with a nostril that evokes Dutch course of cocoa, espresso beans, and a major be aware of younger walnut flesh. No toasty “roasted nut” character right here; this smells (as promised) like recent nuts pulled proper off the tree.

Curiously, the palate showcases a significantly fruity high quality that evokes a younger crimson wine that’s been infused with Hershey’s syrup. Right here the nutty components take a again seat, letting a persistent be aware of strawberry and cherry do the heavier lifting, all draped in loads of candy chocolate. The end is barely bitter, which might be nice besides it clashes with the extra forceful and in the end barely cloying fruit notes to make for a considerably scattered conclusion to the expertise.

Whereas it’s largely inoffensive and might be enjoyable in small portions by itself, I’m struggling to search out cocktailing makes use of the place its odd assortment of flavors don’t dominate the expertise.

44 proof.
