  • Made with 4 Roses, Gran Classico, mole bitters. Thought it might be overloaded but everything contributes (Fernet predictably in front). Sweet but balanced nicely. — ★★★★
  • A little bit of Fernet Branca causes a large amount of Campari and Cynar to taste like... Fernet Branca. — ★★★★
  • very dark strong and bittery with many things I love. I enjoyed it sitting outside with HB after a rain one evening in November. — ★★★★
  • Like falling into bitter sweet oblivion — ★★★★★
  • Deep, spicy, lots going on. — ★★★★★

I've been looking for ways to ease into Fernet Branca and this is great. I'm all about Campari and Cynar and this all goes together wonderfully with the Fernet Branca coming in on the back end.

Found this looking for campari/bourbon combos, and the title caught my eye because my first book (deal) is due in early 2020. Delicious. Spicy, sweet, lots of nuance.
