Manastirka Slivovitz
Written by Leroy Kingman on 5th May 2019

90 proof (45% alcohol) Product of Serbia First of all, I'm not an expert on Slivovitz and I'm certainly not a prefessional reviewer. There aren't many brands of Slivovitz available in the U.S. but I have tried all that I can get my hands on, and have found that they are all vastly different from one another -- more so than different brands of scotches or Bourbons are. This brand is different from most others; it has a bit more sweetness than many and none of the bitterness that some have. Not as sweet as Navip or Carmel were (both are long gone). The name Manastirka means "of the Monastery", which is where this was supposedly originally produced, but is now factory mass produced. It is light gold in color. The aroma is a strange mix of caramel and smoke. Neither really transfers to the flavor, which is unlike any other sliv I have tasted and is difficult to describe. It is more like most peoples' idea of a brandy; the rich taste outweighs the alcohol burn in this one. Manastirka is near the top of my list of slivovitz brands. I drink it occasionally for a change of pace. It won't appeal to everybody, but it's certainly worth trying.

I have tried a number of brands and I keep going back to Manistirka. Nothing compares to the aroma and taste.
