Ancho Reyes Verde is made from the same poblano chile as the Ancho Reyes, but the peppers used are green chiles harvested a bit early, then roasted.
The original uses the late-harvest, sun-dried peppers.
The heat that comes from Ancho Reyes Verde seriously tastes like a freshly picked poblano pepper–it even smells fresh and earthy.
Surprisingly, the liqueur has notes of ginger along with fruits like pineapple and a slight tomato flavor.
Both Original and Verde Ancho Reyes liqueurs are quite versatile, which makes it a perfect element for cocktails.
Original mixes well with brown spirits, whereas the Ancho Reyes Verde seems to mix better with clear spirits. I personally loved the Verde in a cocktail, but the flavors when sipped alone were quite pronounced.
