Made in New Orleans by our mates at Cocktail & Sons, which is understood for its line of unique syrups, this collaboration with Joe Gambino’s Bakery is the outfit’s first alcoholic product, a rum cream flavored to style just like the inimitable NOLA traditional: king cake.
The sunshine brown — and vaguely pink — liqueur has generalized cream liqueur aromas, together with brown sugar and a lightweight, hard-to-place fruit notice. There’s somewhat coconut within the combine too, rising with time. On the palate, the sweetness takes on a slight bubble gum high quality, with candy pastry cream finally dominating. Finally there’s extra of that sweetness, once more with a little bit of a strawberry notice lingering on the end together with a extra conventional trace of cinnamon.
King cake might be made with a big selection of fillings, so “king cake taste” doesn’t imply a complete lot, although once more cinnamon and pastry cream are essentially the most conventional parts. That’s all accounted for right here on the very least, although on the entire the expertise is considerably much less distinct, by no means fairly taking me again to Huge Muddy.
