Tempus Fugit Creme de Cacao a la Vanille
A deliciously creamy cacao and vanilla liqueur based on a 19th century recipe and made with Venezualan cacoa and Mexican vanilla.
Raw cacao from Venezuala is distilled and the distillate is then macerated with additional cacao and crushed whole vanilla bean from Mexico.
Producer's tasting notes...
"Unctuous, syrupy thick, light molasses brown color. Off the charts sweetness and beaniness, with unequal amounts of cocao (two-thirds) and vanilla (one-third) fragrances in the opening whiffs; the powdered cocoa comes to the forefront in the second inhalations, lusciously so. Amazingly cocoa-like and buttery at entry; midpalate is spot-on dark chocolate-like, but neither bitter nor semisweet; it's just flat-out sweet. The suggestions are to either throw in a splash of soda water for a digestif or utilize this gummy liqueur in cocktails that call for crème de cacao."
