Rose Courvoisier recently celebrated its first year anniversary as a product. That’s not bad for a new product release in the ever competitive spirit space these days. It seems like new products are being released weekly, if not daily. It’s hard to keep up. Rose Courvoisier is a liqueur at 18% alcohol by volume (versus the Courvoisier cognac that clocks in at a much heavier 36%) that was created by blending Courvoisier cognac and red wine.
Courvoisier recommends that this lovely libation be served neat or on ice. But, we think it would make a great mixer too. Here is our tasting note:
Color: clear, medium dark pink color with orange hues
Aroma: clean, medium intensity of blackberry, blueberry, peach, dried cherry, dried apricot with oak notes of vanilla, nutmeg and cloves
Palate: well integrated alcohol, medium minus sweetness (very light for a liqueur), medium intensity of blueberry, blackberry, peach, vanilla, nutmeg, cloves and oak with a well, integrated, fruity finish
Rating: average to good liqueur that has smooth, well integrated alcohol. Nice fruit flavors that are a bit overshadowed by the oak.
