12/2007 BERENTZEN APFEL KORN (APPLE SCHNAPPS) LIQUEUR
Schnapps- wow, that brings back hazy memories of ill-spent youth. Fuzzy navels- the head snaps side to side at the mere thought. BERENTZEN APFEL KORN is a mere 40 proof, making it, in our view, a real schnapps. How now? Well, the point of schnapps, as we see it, isn’t to disguise raw spirit in gooey fruit flavors, which folks then shoot down their gullets one after another. Rather, schnapps is to be taken in a small serving after a meal; it’s a dessert drink. BERENTZEN offers a sour apple note, then slips down your throat with nary a burn. Simple, elegant. (Rating ****1/4)
