I was prepared to run the commonly-trod ground of the tasting (nose, taste, finish.) I was absolutely ready to do the necessary research, phone calls and back-work that lay the grounds for a great review. Then I tasted this product- Tres Leches Triple Cream Liqueur. I was struck not only by its textural and flavor depth, but I was even more impressed by its finish. The longest I have ever seen from any spirit. Seriously, this coats the palate and simply won’t let go. Breathe five minutes down the road and you will experience this spirit as you have just finished your first drink.
It must have something to do with the lactates. Like drinking a glass of milk- it stays with you for quite some time, even if you brush your teeth. The entirety of your maxillofacial sensory system is awashed in the cool, round and creamy glow. It simply binds to any cells it comes into contact with, even as vapor.
Don’t get me wrong. It is a crème liqueur, similar to Bailey’s. Bailey’s it is not, though. This is a much bigger, badder beast. It is the undisputed champion in this category, trust me.
I enjoyed it so much; I introduced it to some friends after a dinner at my house. Now I have to go buy more.
