Whilst tasting, one can still taste the spices and there definitely is a cinnamon-like punch to the liqueur. It is less sweet than most pear brandy.
St George Spiced Pear Liqueur is one of the best pear liqueurs that I have tried. It has a truly unique flavour that just showcases the quality of fresh Bartlett Pears used to make the liqueur.

A friend recently served me a Pear brandy and somehow, over the course of the evening, this pear spiced liqueur just washed over me, and I articulated my amazement to my buddy. I am a stickler when it comes to drinks, so I was intrigued.
This pear liqueur was so good that we went to the primary producer and bought a whole bunch. St George’s Spiced Pear Liqueur is the first one that we have tasted, but this was the best of all of them!

This is the best “pear” liqueur I have ever tasted. It is not just a reflection on the “pear” liqueur because the liqueur really does taste of pear. I love a pear liqueur and I would definitely buy this one.
The spices in pear liqueur are unmistakable, but the liqueur is not cloying. It is definitely a drink to be sipped on its own – it is not too sweet and not too heavy. This is the best pear liqueur I have ever drunk, and I will definitely be buying a bottle for mixing into my gin and tonics.
Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, anise. Or perhaps just peaty, sweet. The nose is scented with mild pear (anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves) and there is a mild heat to the nose. The palate is very sweet – a pear syrup, with a spicy-tart note of anise and cinnamon.
The palate is spicy, slightly sweet, and inviting. The finish adds a pear-tang with a subtle bite. However, a word of caution. This is an ‘experimental’ liquor you might do well to try ‘pure’ at first (the cheap “makeshift” bottle you buy on the shelf).
The real thing is that once you taste a good pear liqueur you can’t drink the rest! The flavors are too strong and are difficult to re-create in other drinks.
