Pear-flavored spirits always come across a bit funky to me, and Skyy Pear is no exception. Though lightly sweet with honey and vague pear notes, the nose is a touch medicinal and slightly rubbery. This fades with some time, so consider letting your cocktails air out a bit by pre-mixing without ice before finishing them in the glass.There’s still a little hospital funk on the finish though not as much as the nose might suggest as here it comes across closer to a character of perfume or white flowers. All told it’s a unique set of flavors and a set that is distinctly pear-focused.
Overall the finished product is not bad at all, though as you may have already guessed, the versatility of this spirit is likely to be somewhat limited
