First, come the hot days of summer, a chilled glass of Limoncello really hits the spot.
Second, there are more than a few cheap, gassy Limoncellos out there that taste terrible and are a blight on the name Limocello.
Ventura Limoncello, we are pleased to report, is very good Limoncello.
Ventura is decidedly small batch—-founder James Ventura told AlcoholReviews.com that his company produces just 100 to 200 cases per month.
Ventura Limoncello Originale comes in at a slightly immodest 58 proof, which means a couple shooters will make you a little loopy. But boy is it tasty, and the textures is positively silky. With Ventura, there’s none of that saccharin sweetness; nor is there an after-scorch. Mmmm…. Refreshing and relaxing. (Rating ****)
