Crazy Uncle Blood Orange Rosemary Maple Punch Review
This is a new LCBO release part of the Christmas specials and with a name like "Crazy Uncle" how can I resist buying it?
The bottle comes with a small packet filled with a blend of cinnamon, sugar and some other spices to be used as a rimmer. I decided to do this the proper way and poured the contents of the packet onto a plate. With a small lime wedge I used the rimmer and poured myself a glass.
The drink has a very strong rosemary with a sweet blood orange undertone. The taste is very herbal with a nice orange base. The sweetness builds up and there is a strong alcoholic note with with every sip. The finish is warm and sweet yet refreshing with a lingering orange note. Overall this is a pretty decent pre-mixed drink and with its herbal character it might be a good Christmas drink.
Cost - $17.95
Taste - 7.5/10

Overall - 7.5/10...pretty decent pre-mixed drink
