Vanilla, cherry, black pepper spice and lingering rooty bitterness.
Put this bottle in the fridge and pour into a chilled glass or ice-filled glass and you’ll have yourself a very enjoyable lazy man’s Sweet Manhattan. Forget to chill ahead of time and end up stirring with ice to chill and you’ll end up with a disappointingly dilute drink. We also enjoyed Jefferson’s The Manhattan at room temperature straight from the bottle – but then again, we were brought up drinking British ale at “cellar temperature” rather than cold beer.
