Jagdtraum is very traditional german herbal liqueur. The cocktail of medicinal herbs is on the background, bitterness is moderate, it’s sweet but not too much. It’s very smooth, easy drinking liqueur, well mixed and balanced. Licorice is noticeable but not any other herbs. Burn is mild, aftertaste pleasantly soft and spicy. If you haven’t ever drink any herbal liqueur, Jagdtraum should be good to start of. It can be described as little brother of Jägermeister, and when it is around half cheaper, it’s highly recommended. On the other hand, those who are looking for stronger and bitter flavours, Jagdtraum can be too smooth and sweet.
