GSN Review: Pür Likör Liqueurs

purspirits-allbottles_screenPür Likör based in San Francisco seeks to make liqueurs and spirits based on Old World recipes and craftsmanship.  They currently have six different products available, including two fruit vodkas and a barley distillate. I was sent the three liqueurs for review.

Some interesting facts to consider:

It takes 35 pounds of Williams pears to make just 0.75 liters of distillate.

Elderflowers are only is season for a few days a year.

Blood oranges are high in antioxidants.

Williams (Pear) (50 proof)
Visual: Very pale gold.
Nose: Fresh pear juice.
Taste: Sweet and intense pear flavor up front, with a sweet sugar base appearing about halfway through.
Finish: Medium long with lingering pear notes and a just a touch of spice.
Overall: Very tasty and juicy.  Well done.
GSN Rating: A

Blossom (Elderflower) (44 proof)
Visual: Clear dark yellow.
Nose: Fruity and luscious lychee.
Taste: The mouthfeel is thick and somewhat glycerine-like.  The elderflower flavor is fairly subdued and overpowered by the sweetness.
Finish: The elderflower shyly comes back again after the intense sugar hit fades.
Overall: The elderflower is less present than I hoped.
GSN Rating: B

Spice (Blood Orange) (50 proof)
Visual: Clear reddish-orange.
Nose: Orange with a load of cinnamon spice and a touch of clove.
Taste: A brief tang of orange quickly gives way to a lot of cinnamon, which becomes the predominant character.
Finish: Sweet and spicy, but not a lot of blood orange coming through.
Overall: I would have liked less spice and more orange.  It seems unbalanced.
GSN Rating: B-
