The coconut doesn`t grow on a pumpkin vine, and The Bitter Truth Golden Falernum Liqueur does not forget it is a rum liqueur. This falernum is gold in color, taste, and texture, but never one-note. It is a calypso of flavor!
On the nose, fresh lime, seashell, and ginger with just a hint of Christmas. The taste carnivals from fresh ginger to vanilla and almond, surfing towards an atomic fireball. Allspice giving into a splash of lime and a delicate hint of Bajan sweet pepper sauce-like heat. With breadth that feels like a two week holiday, this falernum can perk up any aged spirit and instantly turn it into a drink worthy of some elaborate tropical adornment beyond the obligatory paper umbrella.
It can be sipped neat or on ice, but it is a great companion for aged spirits like whiskey, rum, and brandy. And of course, it’s an indispensable ingredient in numerous Tiki drinks.
