  • Used branca menta instead.
  • Very good. I find the fernet to actually get a little lost. Next time I'll increase, or take the advice of the previous comment and try with branca menta.
  • Nice after dinner digestif
  • Colors are almost too itense. So much... taste. The S&C is totally lost IMHO.
  • Good after meal cocktail, Campari notes are well balanced by the Smith and Cross and Fernet — ★★★★
