    Neat. Room temp. A deep, syrupy brown. A tangy and crisp nose reveals cola, mint, orange, fennel, and chocolate. Bergamot. Herbs and barrel notes steer the mind toward American rye whiskey. Extremely sweet. Consistent with the nose - leads with orange, lemon, and cola, then molasses, coffee beans, and dark chocolate. Gentian. Oregano. Root beer. The sweetness, herbaceous chocolate, and clove/allspice linger. New to amaro but I like this. Definitely a tooth-coating sugar bomb but could see sipping from time to time - the fruit/root/herb/spice does just enough to keep it interesting. Might be better thinned out over ice. A wallop of a modifier for cocktails.

    Versatile, good on its own or in cocktails. Hard to place but takes otherwise OK drinks to the next level.

    Not any bitter note, only caramel and addicted flavors. Industrial cheap product.

    I’m expanding my knowledge on cocktails and bought this to make Black Manhattans. This amaro is rich, syrupy, and has lots of complex herbal notes. Someone described it as thick Coke syrup and I agree. My favorite Manhattan cocktail recipe has 1 part sweet vermouth, 2 parts rye whiskey, and a coupe dashes of angostura bitters. It’s fruity and sweet with some spice from the rye. The Black Manhattan replaces the vermouth with the amaro. It’s richer, nuttier, and more complex. I, also, use orange bitters to bring out more of the orange flavor in the amaro. I like it, but still prefer the regular Manhattan as my go-to cocktail. If you’re curious about black Manhattans, order one at a bar first before you drop money on a bottle. Cheers!
