GSN Review: Lovoka Caramel Liqueur

high-res-lovoka-bottleThe candy flavored drinks market doesn’t seem to be slowing down any.  And while some are getting ever more bizarre à la Willy Wonka, some of the best to be found stick to the tried and true basic flavors.  Thus, the Lovoka line makes a chocolate, a caramel and a recently debuted nut and spiced-based flavor called Silk; each using triple distilled vodka as a base.  GSN was sent a bottle of the caramel for review.  The other two flavors will be making their US debut later on.

The bottle by the way is pretty snazzy.  Made out of recyclable aluminum, it can easily be reused as a water bottle that can be quickly chilled.  This also means it’s lighter when shipping and as such, is more ecologically friendly.  Nice touch.

Lovoka (60 proof)
Visual: Clear gold.
Nose: Fresh caramel.
Taste: Sweet and natural with a milk caramel body.  A touch of vanilla rounds out the profile.
Finish: Lingering notes of sweet cooked cream and sugar
Overall: One of the most natural caramel flavored spirits I’ve had.  Very well done and great on its own or mixed in to a “dessert-tini”.  I’m not a huge fan of candy-flavored liqueurs, but this one impresses.
GSN Rating: B+
