Jagermeister may be associated with party drinking and the rock-and-roll lifestyle, but the latest Jagermeister Manifest expression brings the liqueur that much closer towards premium status. The new spirit is essentially a follow-up to 2013's Jagermeister Spice and is crafted with a distinctly different approach to the incredibly dark and licorice heavy expressions of classic Jager. Instead, Jagermeister Manifest comes across more as a gentle amaro-style spirit rather than an aggressive herbal liqueur.
Instead of the traditional licorice tones, Jagermeister Manifest offers a nose that is reminiscent of a root beer with the inclusion of a healthy dose of cinnamon. The palate introduces a heavy dose of vanilla and sarsaparilla, which is then complemented with a gentle amount of anise. This flavor profile gives the spirit a distinctly sweet body that finishes off with notes of chocolate, dark spices and freshly baked gingerbread.
