Black Balzam Riga

Member Review by Lee Harris:

The taste is between brandy and earthy herbal medicine notes. There is serious medicinal qualities here in taste and effect. Definitely an acquired taste. Try some in coffee. The saying goes that ladies have a drop of balzams in their coffee while gents have a drop of coffee in their Black Balzams! Enjoy.

Tasting Notes:

Riga was created in the middle of the 18th century probably in Latvia. This wine has subtle hints of blossom, birch bud, raspberry, bilberry and ginger. Once it is poured into the glass, smells of nutmeg and peppercorn come alive.
