Review and Tasting
Sampled on 04/06/2013
("Oaken maturity achieved 2013") Cloudy (muddy) amber.
Pungent waxy naval and mandarin orange zest with faint orange flower water.
Intense orange zest oil with pine, citrus and gentian bitterness.
Very long bitter zesty finish. Fresh and intense bitter orange without the barky notes found in many other orange bitters.
