94 • Basement Bitters Bitter Frost $20/125 ml.
On the nose, very pleasant aromas suggest carrot cake and banana bread. The palate confirms the nose with a subtle gingerbread and citrus soda like notes. In the Old Fashioned cocktail, the fruity and savory cake notes play very nicely with the bourbon and orange making the cocktail more delicious and round with decadent caramel and root beer frosting notes. Definitely a "secret sauce" of a bitters. (tasted on May-09-2014)
92 • Bittered Sling Kensington Dry Aromatic Bitters $32/250ml.
Very savory herb and spice aromas suggest bbq rubbed meat in the best possible way. On the palate, mixed peppercorn, saffron, and raw golden beet notes emerge. In the Old Fashioned cocktail the savory herb and spice and meaty character meshes well with the bourbon's caramelized nuttiness and makes the orange notes like spice cake. A savory and transformative bitters that will work well for cocktail pairing dinners. (tasted on May-09-2014)
90 • Peychaud's Aromatic Cocktail Bitters $5.99/5 oz. Best Buy.
Distinctive crimson color. Complex aromas of anise, nutmeg, clove, and pomegranate. On the palate, subtle and integrated brown spice, celery stalk, and pepper bread like notes. In the Martini cocktail, the bitters continue their nuanced journey and round out all the edges of the cocktail very nicely with a nice licorice note. Subtle, but effective. (tasted on May-09-2014)
