Lustau Sweet Vermouth
Appearance: Mahogany in color with reddish hues. Nose: Sweet aromas of ripe fruit mingle with hints of citrus fruit and herbaceous notes, over a smoked wood base. Mouth: On the palate it is flavorsome, velvety and balanced. A bitter finish, with a delicate and distinctive nutty aftertaste. Pairing: Serve between 7-9ºC (44-48ºF) on the rocks and garnish it with an orange peel. The perfect apéritif if accompanied with olives, nuts or any snacks.
An interesting newcomer to the U.S. market, the base of this vermouth is rich, nutty Sherry-80% amontillado and 20% Pedro Ximenez, to be precise. It has a coffee-brown hue and a bright dried-herb scent. The palate wows with sticky toffee, dried apricot, orange peel and cocoa. Ideal for adding complexity to drinks featuring dark spirits.
