|1||ds||Bitters, Bittermens Xocolatl Mole|

Spanish brandy is aromatic with sherry notes; if it can't be found, an oloroso sherry would be a better replacement than a Cognac.
From other users
- Very good. Made with Vida and Cognac
- Dark chocolate, deep bitterness, smoke, savoriness, mint, long finish. Well-liked on eGullet.
- With Vida/cognac, quite interesting, each flavor has its turn. The wind takes a turn and blows the campfire smoke in your face! ETA: With Spanish brandy and Sacrificio. Less smoky, more chocolatey.
- Made with Cynar 70 which I would strongly recommend.
- A little heavier on Mezcal - dash more - and had to use Tamarind bitters, due to no mole bitters. Great, smokey, Cynar goodness.
- Very good. Go easy on the Mole bitters as they can easily overwhelm
