Review and Tasting


Sampled on 03/06/2024

Appearance:

Clear, bright scarlet red.

Aroma:

Blood-red orange and zesty ruby grapefruit with faint lemon thyme and bark-like black pepper.

Taste:

Syrup sweetness is offset by quinine bitterness with blood-red orange zest, cherry and mint.

Aftertaste:

Quinine and zesty orange with pithy bitterness.

Overall:

Bitter with pronounced zesty citrus. Quinine bitterness and sweetness are on par with Campari (the previous sample in 2016 appeared less bitter).
