Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/11/2016

Appearance

Hazy with sediment in suspension, deep golden amber.

Aroma

Pungent smoky Lapsang Souchong black tea with rooty notes, light citrus and faint vanilla.

Taste

Rooty bitterness and bitter tea tannins with pronounced flavour of black tea. Smoky notes and more subdued than on the palate with faint zesty citrus adding freshness.

Aftertaste

Very long tea tannin influenced finish with lingering Lapsang Souchong.

Overall

Although designed to enhance cocktails made with Black Bottle Scotch whisky these versatile bitters are great used not only with other whiskies and dark spirts in general, but also worked well when we tested them in both gin and vodka based cocktails. Predominantly Lapsang Souchong in flavour, these bitters are a welcome addition to the enormous range of bitters available and are the first tea bitters we have come across.
