Mickey Finn Irish Apple Liqueur Tasting Notes
Color: Pale. Light Straw.
Aroma: Definitely apple. Tart, crisp, green apple. Sweetness is light, but there. Apple skin like a Gala apple. No burn.
Tasted Neat: Oh yes, this is sweet. No syrupy sweetness, but light sweet. Good job with the apple notes. Doesn’t come off as artificial at all. Warm cider comes to mind. Bit of rugged edge lets you know it is not just juice here. Warms nicely.
Mouth Feel: Thin
Possible Uses, Pairings and / or Cocktails:
I might pair this with lemon juice, simple syrup and ginger ale for a long drink; tweaking to taste of course. Could also be enjoyed simply as is or on the rocks. Fun, playful Irish whiskey. Might also warm nicely hot toddy style or this would make a terrific apple pie cocktail for fall.
