Smoked Cinnamon Bitters

Category: Aromatic Bitters

Date Tasted:
Country: USA
Alcohol: 42%
Tasted as a Old Fashioned cocktail. Amber color. Aromas and flavors of fine cherry pipe tobacco, sandalwood, carrot cake and zucchini bread toast, and singed cinnamon with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long finish with impressions of orange cake with cherries and spiced honey finish. Lightly smoky spice, wood and tobacco notes add a lot of complexity to an Old Fashioned cocktail and smooth out any rough edges in bourbon.

Aromatic Bitters

Aromatic bitters contain spices such as cinnamon, anise and allspice among their ingredients, which gives these bitters more perfumed fruitier and floral notes. Flavor characteristics range from mincemeat to fennel to carrot and banana; the aromatic bitters definitely round out and add some zestiness as well as some tang to cocktails.
