John D. Taylor's Velvet Falernum: 750ml & 22 Proof
As a fan of the Velvet Underground, I figured I had to try John D. Taylor's Velvet Falernum. It turns out, they have absolutely nothing to do with each other. But, you live and you learn, and you discover an amazing cocktail ingredient!
What do you get when you ask the world's greatest rum maker, R. L. Seale (see our R. L. Seale's Finest Barbados 12-Year Rum), to make the ultimate complement to aged rums? The answer is John D. Taylor's Velvet Falernum. From the daiquiri to the mojito, it can take cocktails to new heights with rich almond, spice, and sweet notes.
In the hands of a passionate cocktailer, John D. Taylor's Velvet Falernum is a Swiss Army Knife, slicing and dicing cocktails with new complexity and depth of flavor.
The word from Anders on John D. Taylor's Velvet Falernum:
Velvet Falernum is spicy and sweet with notes of vanilla, lime, and ginger. I love the added depth it offers to tikis.

Wonderful and pretty powerful flavors in this. Quite sweet as well. Used mostly in what would be called "tiki" cocktails. I found BG Reynolds Falernum (non-alcoholic syrup) is a fairly close match flavor-wise but looks terrible LOL. Also, this will be shelf stable, basically forever.Best ForRated -2.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

Started using this in nearly every tiki drink, and it's become a bar staple for me. Absolutely delicious.Best ForRated -2.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

So first things first, this liqueur is not intended to be imbibed on its own -- without anything else to support it, it is cloyingly sweet, heavy on clove and other spices, with a little lime thrown in. When mixed however, these flavors evolve and shine and support your base in beautiful ways! You might be able to roll your own but if you can get your hands on this you'll have an excellent addition to a cocktail with little effort. Definitely recommended!
