Review: Caffo Limoncino dell’Isola

The test of any lemoncello, I suppose, is how much it tastes like lemons. Judging from how much homemade lemoncello is poured in Italian bars, it can’t be tough to make, and most of it is pretty good.

Caffe’s Limoncino dell’Isola is made from Calabria lemons and has nothing artificial inside. The color and haziness of a strong lemonade, it’s actually fairly mild compared to most lemoncellos I’ve encountered. The body has a good mix of tart and sweet — probably a touch more on the tart, actually — with a clean finish that offers a touch of earthy, honey character.

Good body, just about right — at 60 proof.
