Eros Liqueur Butterscotch
The moment you open the bottle, well before even considering pouring it into a glass, the room is filled with a powerful scent of butterscotch. No alcohol, nothing extra except for maybe a hint of vanilla, but perfectly matched to the scent of butterscotch. As you get it closer to your nose as you prepare to taste, it reminds you of lovely kids yogurts, similar to YoGo. It is lovely, refreshing and rather relaxing as you think back to your formative years as a young kid running back inside with groceries so your mother with let you have that lovely treat of a yogurt. Keeping with the dairy train of thought, butterscotch ice-cream seems to ring a bell.
It's a little bit nippy when it first touches your tongue, which is nice because it draws your attention straight to it. Following the fleeting seconds that it demands your attention, it becomes soft and easy to drink, taking form of the wondrous butterscotch flavour we all know and love. It kind of has a butterscotch ice-cream kind of flavour to it, probably because of it's syrup kind of nature.
The Bar Test
The coke really manages to become the front runner on the nose, but strangely doesn't seem to take anything away from the smell of the butterscotch. It adds a sweetness to the smell and as soon as you make it passed the smell of the coke, you can only assume it is prepared to compliment and bring the flavour out of the lovely butterscotch liqueur even more!
The first thing you'll notice when you pour the liquid into your mouth is that it has become quite a thick, syrupy liquid, opposed the a normal coke feel. There are a few moments of silence, completely neutral upon touching down on your tongue, but it doesn't take long for a ramping up flavour of the butterscotch. This time it is far sweeter and the taste experience lasts a lot longer as the coke both sweetens and draws out the flavour. Interestingly, it tastes like it has been mixed with a natural sweeter, rather than a kind of sugar. Once you swallow you sip, the flavour essentially instantly disperses and its gone, leaving nothing in it's wake. Upon your second sip, you'll notice the milkiness adds a spider (ice-cream and coke) vibe to the drink as it dances across your tongue.
We would definitely recommend this for mainly a more cocktail purpose, but this is very low on the alcohol front and tastes amazing. Feel free to take shots of this, but others may judge you after finding out how great it tastes. It also tastes amazing with coke, it is lovely as something for special occasions, perhaps at the pancake parlour with your dessert pancakes! As an added bonus: it is super cheap!
- Literally the exact same scent as the shot.There's a slight fizziness and a little bit of a nip at the end, but the initial nippiness is gone!
- There is a little bit of a coke smell added to this one, but it tastes exactly the same as the one shot version.
- Not much of a different to the scent, the butterscotch still commands your attention without a doubt. Quite fizzy here, the coke starts to sweeten the butterscotch and starts to make it taste similar to ice-cream. This one is really nice, definitely recommend a try!
- Smells the exact same as the three shot level. A little bit fizzier, but it still tastes the same as the three shot version with a little more fizzy and dessert-y, spider like vibes. You can tell it's starting to dilute here, but it's still amazing.
