Proof66 Notes

Goldschlager is "the original" hot cinnamon schnapps and famously has honest-to-god genuine 23 karat gold leaf (24 is pure) floating in suspension in the bottle. According to Wikipedia, this amounts to less than a tenth of an ounce but that's still worth about $3 on the open market at today's prices. That's like a coupon in the bottom of every bottle if you strain it out and figure out a way to actually sell it. There's a great write-up on someone extracting and weighing the gold at Cockeyed.com.

The proof is listed variously as 87pf and 80pf... we've opted to list it as 80.

Diageo has recently turned over the distribution and marketing of this brand to Global Brands and we list them as the current best marketing website.

Smooth and full of flavor. Warms you up on a cold day. An 80 proof schnapps takes it from 3 stars to 4.

Looks are deceiving with this gold concoction. It tastes like big red gum but better. Great for shots or mixed drinks.

i would expect that a schnapps that was trying this hard to catch your attention was trying to compensate for mediocre taste, but that is not the case. Pretty good, actually.

I used to drink this when I was younger and always enjoyed it. This isn't something that I could sit down and drink all night but it's nice for a shot or two every now and then.

I love Gold Schlager, but take it easy, because it packs a wallop.

When I worked at the liquor store, we had a man come in every week and buy a bottle of this. I asked him if this was any good. He told me: "I've got pancreatic cancer. I should be able to enjoy the finer things in life with whatever I have left." I took his advice and put a half pint of it onto my store tab. I enjoyed the flavor. The cinnamon wasn't too much, and the gold was a nice touch. I sip it neat mostly, or put it in my coffee. Overall I thoroughly recommend this to anyone who wishes to try something exciting and new.

Yes the gold is gimicky looking but it actually tastes not bad. It's not a rip off by any means but for it's catagory I suppose 3 stars is as high as I can give it.

My god this stuff is great. Excellent cinnamon flavor and a close rival to my favorite Fireball. Drinks too smoothly and can lead to trouble.... first night I had a bottle was legitimately my first blackout. If you like cinnamon it is a must-try

I can't believe I actually like this stuff. I had a mini on hand and just drank it for the heck of it, but was very pleasantly surprised. It should go nice in a mixed drink, but the taste is not so overpowering that it prevents it being enjoyed straight.

Oh, God! I drank a bottle of this on the worst night of my life, but it wasn the Goldshlagers fault unless my determination to drink the gold led me on. Who knows? Its tasty, but, damn, I can hardly see a bottle without wanting to yack. My hangover was the worst ever!

very skeptical going in; thought the gold flakes were gimmicky. in the end, though, i am smitten by the flavor.
