Chartreuse Yellow (France) 375ML
Distillery Notes: "Milder and sweeter than the famous Green Chartreuse, Yellow Chartreuse was introduced to the world in 1840. It also is presented in the traditional Chartreuse liqueur bottle embossed with the seal of La Grande Chartreuse. Its colour is entirely natural with no artificial flavours or preservatives. It, too, can be enjoyed neat or in a long drink.
Only two Chartreuse monks know the identity of the 130 plants, how to blend them and how to distill them into this world famous liqueur. They are also the only ones who know which plants they have to macerate to produce the natural green and yellow colours. And they alone supervise the slow aging in oak casks.
This liqueur is gentle, floral and honeyed: think daisies under a hot sun. This has floral and violet aromas, with hints of sweet lemon and intense spices. On the palate are thick honey and blood orange flavors mixed with an array of exotic spices, including saffron, anise and cloves. There’s a bitter leaf and licorice finish, with a softening, sweet character."
Wine Enthusiast 91 Points: “Yellow, faintly tinged with green. The aroma is bright, mild and lime-lollipop sweet, although the flavor is more herbal, with hints of mint and anise, and a pronounced licorice finish and alcohol sting. Thick, syrupy and tongue-coating."
