Abbot’s is a brand of aromatic/medicinal bitters popular in the 1920s and produced up until the mid-1950s. It has been resurrected with a reproduction of the label and what is thought to be a close recreation of the liquid by friends Peter Schaf and John Troia and their Tempus Fugit Spirits Company.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 06/08/2013

Appearance

Clear, orange amber.

Aroma

Herbal, spicy and medicinal with freshly sawn light wood, cinnamon and vanilla.

Taste

Bitter bark, cinnamon and dry spicy oak with a balancing sweetness and strong saffron flavours.

Aftertaste

Very long bitter spice with lingering herbal complexity. Tested against Angostura Bitters in a Sweet Manhattan the difference is most noticeable on the finish, appearing to be much extended, heightening the whiskey notes.
