Herbert is a German-style herbal liqueur, reminds Jägermeister, Jagdtraum and many other. Aroma is slightly herbal, dry but quite mild. Taste have herbs, spices and bunch of sugar, mouthfeel is quite thick. But also bitters, which break the peak of sweetness, so these two are well balanced. Burn is pleasantly mild, aftertaste is herbal and bitterly dry. Lack of thick syrupy it is easily drinked neat and maybe with the beer. It’s one of the best estonian made herbal liqueurs, which only defect is lack of originality.
