What does the sommelier say about Nochino?
"The liqueur looks very tempting on the eye, its the colour is dark red to burgundy.
In the fragrance, the first to appear notes of forest fruits. Raspberries, blackberries and chokecherries can be recognised. They also predominate spicy aromas of cinnamon, anise or star anise and this beautiful complexity is complemented by earthy notes evoking beetroot and pomegranate. Who is looking for, in the liqueur will also find floral bouquetlinden and herbal mint.
The taste is pleasantly sweet and harmonises with the aroma, as you would expect from a liqueur. Earthy pomegranate appears first, along with forest fruits. The spiciness on the tongue is represented by subtle vanilla and cinnamon. Interesting is also delicious bitternesswhich is reminiscent of the bitterness of grapefruit or lemon rinds. This complex non-alcoholic liqueur completesmild aciditywhich is in perfect harmony with the dominant sweetness.
The finish is surprisingly long, lingers on the tongue sweet fruity sensation together with a subtle spicy undertone. The bitter and earthy flavours of pomegranate also linger in the aftertaste for quite a long time.
Nochino presents a fascinating combination of flavours in a non-alcoholic version. Such an unconventional liqueur can really turn bar culture on its head.
