Review and Tasting

Sampled on 06/02/2017

Appearance

Clear, crimson red with small bubbles and a ring of foam around the glass.

Aroma

Blood orange peel, orange sherbet, grapefruit, cherry and lemon thyme.

Taste

Herbaceous quinine bitterness and refreshing carbon dioxide effervescence with blood orange zest, zesty grapefruit, rich cherry and faint vanilla cream-of-soda.

Aftertaste

Long dry finish with orange pith bitterness, sweet cherry and vanilla.

Overall

Campari and soda is one of the most revered combinations of liquids to ever come together in a bar. However, due to its dry bitterness it is a polarising one. If not initially to your taste then persevere, and if you finish the bottle and you’re still not a convert then mix yourself a Campari & Tonic.
