Review and Tasting

Sampled on 12/01/2018

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Pungent blend of herbs, spices, floral and citrus - cardamom, black pepper, cinnamon, rose, coriander, saffron and zesty orange with a faint, and a strangely attractive whiff of grannies’ soap.

Taste

Assertive bitterness and spice is rounded and softened by subtle sweetness and faint liquorice.

Aftertaste

Citrusy and spicy with lingering floral notes.

Overall

Despite being spicier (black pepper and cardamom) than other similar red Italian Bitters, when sampled neat, Martini Riserva Speciale has an attractive roundness and creaminess.
