Thre bouquet is mesmerizing with multiple layers of fragrances that incliude pine/cedar, quinine, fennel, white pepper, licorice, mace, allspice, sage and rosemary. An orange zest flavor appears at palate entry; midpalate finds exotic tastes of orange zest, tangerine zest, multiple herbs and spices, honey and pine. A fabulous liqueur.

Developed in the early 16th century at Fécamp Abbey in France. The delicately herbal bouquet is an unusual combination of earth and flowers; one of the more seductive, unique and piquant liqueur perfumes in existence. In the mouth, the full texture coats the tongue as sweet flavors of honey, citrus peel, rosemary, sage and basil harmonize perfectly. Aftertaste is silky-smooth and extended. Magnificent.

More coppery/henna-like in color than B&B; excellent purity. The comely herbaceousness doesn’t leap from the glass as much as it wafts in stately manner; aeration releases multiple layers of mesmerizing fragrance, including pine/cedar, quinine, fennel, white pepper, licorice, mace, allspice, sage, and rosemary; there is no other liqueur bouquet like it. What’s missed in the aroma is the orange zest/tangerine that’s evident in the palate entry; the flavor profile at midpalate is in full swing as layer after layer of appealing taste bobs up then ducks down, leaving room for the others; these exotic yet familiar flavors include orange zest, tangerine zest, multiple herbs and spice, honey, and pine. One of the ten best liqueurs in the world.

Made for centuries, Benedictine is that mellow yet characterful liqueur that smacks equally of benign medicine and delectable spirit. Aromas include pine/cedar, quinine, fennel, licorice and white pepper. Tastes include orange zest, tangerine, honey, herbs, and spices. One of a kind.
