Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/08/2016

Appearance

Clear, light rusty red with bright glints.

Aroma

Zesty orange and grapefruit with underlying herbal notes.

Taste

Light and subtle, bitter sweet and zesty with bitter orange, grapefruit sherbet and herbal rooty complexity. Faint clove spice.

Aftertaste

Lingering orange and grapefruit light bitter zestiness.

Overall

As bitter Italian aperitivos go, Peychaud’s is on the light side – slightly drier and rootier than Aperol but much tamer than the likes of Campari. Low in alcohol, this is a middle of the road crowd-pleasing Aperitivo.
