10% - Light blackcurrant with a hint of skin and some juiciness
20% - Stronger blackcurrant with a slight grape like flavour, this has the hint of skin and some juiciness and a slight syrupy mouthfeel
I’d use as a main flavour 6%-9%, background 3%-6%, Accent 2%-3% and standalone 10%-20%
I’d use with fruits and may work well with some grapes.
I wouldn’t use this as the main blackcurrant as there are better ones out there for my taste buds, I’d advise to use some caution with this as the usage on ELR ranges from 0.4%-20% with some users stating that they find this very harsh and also being very strong and taking over recipes. Although I didn’t find any harshness with this and found it surprisingly light as high as 20%. I’d advise to start low with this and work up.
