Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/06/2017

Appearance

Clear, dark reddy-brown amber.

Aroma

Watered down and spiced (cinnamon) cola with orange zest, freshly roasted coffee and complex herbal aromas.

Taste

Bittersweet, orangey, herbal and mildly bitter with camomile, cinnamon, star anise, dark liquorice, chocolate and rootyness.

Aftertaste

Slightly bitter with lingering liquorice, rooty and herbal notes. Long lingering cola and rooty bitterness.

Overall

Reminiscent of an Italian amaro. Mix with lemonade or ginger ale to make a classic Pimm's Cup but also consider as a bittersweet cocktail ingredient.
