Licor 43 Baristo (31% abv), from Zamora Company, is a combination of Licor 43 Original and coffee from the Canary Islands. Local farmers in the Agaete Valley, which is located on the island of Gran Canaria in Spain, have been growing arabica typica for more than 200 years. This coffee is “highly acclaimed” by coffee experts and has frequently been classified as a “speciality”. Tasting notes: “Freshly roasted coffee with a delicate touch of citrus, spices, notes of vanilla and dried mature fruit. On the palate, a subtle flavour of freshly roasted coffee with the vanilla notes of Licor 43 and hints of sweet fruit”. The recommended way to drink Licor 43 Baristo is on the rocks.
