I bought this some years ago and used it for a cocktail or two but can't recall the details. It's either the years or the cocktails. Anyway, it's been untouched for quite some time, so I thought I'd taste it neat, for palate-training as my friend Doug Philips would say.

I took just a bit, half a teaspoon.

What a lovely taste! It's like rosewater and Turkish delight, sweet, but in a natural way. On the side of the bottle it says both natural and artificial flavouring is used. Well, the result is a triumph of chemistry and nature.

I'm thinking a scosh of this in a good vodka or gin would work well. Reports will ensue..
