The Bitter Truth
Drops & Dashes Nut Bitters

Category: Exotic Bitters

Date Tasted:
Country: Germany
Alcohol: 42%
Tasted as an Old Fashioned cocktail. Amber color. Aromas and flavors of bourbon barrel, dark caramelized nuts, dark raisin bread, and maple sap and bark with a round, bright, moderately sweet medium-to-full body and an amusing, medium-long chocolate toffee, delicate fenugreek, roasted chestnuts and sassafras, and oak and limestone finish. In an Old Fashioned these bitters amplify the woody notes of the bourbon making a younger bourbon taste older and bringing out the minerally charred barrel notes throughout.
