Deep chestnut brown color. More dried spice in style with cinnamon, allspice, and anise cookie followed by gentian and hay notes with a bone dry palate and chalk and twiggy astringency on the finish. In the old fashioned cocktail, the effect is one of total integration and elevation of the sweet baking spice and fruity caramel notes of the bourbon. It really acts like a glue and an amplifier for the flavors of this cocktail and gives a nice lingering spiced nut top note to the finish. Fantastic.

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.
