Alcohol: 42%
Tasted as a Pisco Sour cocktail. Bright mahogany color. Aromas and flavors of lemon chiffon, floral honeycomb, duck egg, and fish sauce with a supple, tangy, moderately sweet medium body and a breezy citrus pith and gentian, hibiscus tea, sarsaparilla, and lavender perfume and potpourri finish. These bitters bring a distinctive earthy, almost animal quality to a pisco sour, making the egg seem like duck or ostrich egg; interesting.
