Luxardo Passione Nera Sambuca is a variation of the traditional Sambuca dei Cesari Luxardo. It is aromatised with liquorice, with a production recipe entailing several levels of successive infusions to blend the different ingredients. The predominant taste is star anise. However, it is combined with a new velvety sensation on the palate, with light spicy hints of cardamom and coriander, and an after-taste where the typical digestive aromas of liquorice predominate. Luxardo Passione Nera Sambuca is neither an ordinary liquorice digestivo, nor a common place coffee-sambuca.
