Another “is it amaro?” But I care not because I really like it. Stupid bitter. Ever so much mint and maybe licorice but mostly just bitterness that makes you wanna keel over but in the best way. This bitter is a happy field trip.

Not just fernet branca, this is a bottle from the 60s from Italy. Buy these if you see them. Nothing like modern stuff. Long, persistent, dry.

Bitters for grown ups. Unexpectedly strong peppermint and cream de menthe aromas but palate showed wood, pine bark, smoke and lime peel.

Yikes. 39% alc... Some kind of heat there...Deb says "prunes on acid",.. Judith says "it grows on you" and I'm feelin' pretty warm right now...
