Review and Tasting
Sampled on 26/01/2013
(lot #248/12, best by Dec-13) Deep teak reddish brown.
Pungent amaretto and maraschino cherry with light rootyness, allspice and white pepper.
Initial mild bitterness quickly grows but remains subdued compared to other bitters. Cherry notes fight for attention against clove spiced oaky bitterness.
Cherry notes give way to lingering rooty gentian bitterness.
