Muddy brown color. Aromas of allspice, clove and cinnamon suggest mincemeat pie, yet the palate is bone dry with a stalky fennel, cinchona and fenugreek-like finish. In the old fashioned cocktail, the effect is a to add another layer of baking spices and fruitiness that compliment the vanilla, toasted marshmallow, and oak spice of the bourbon. The bittering effect is nominal with only a hint of nutty and leafy astringency that again is extremely well-meshed with the oak notes of the whisky. This bitters plays nicely.

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.
