Complex and appealingly herbal, this spirit is marked by its coffee-brown color and a scent like spearmint-spiked espresso. The flavor is sweet, faintly coffee-like, with warm Dutch licorice, anise and sarsaparilla notes. The brisk finish is minty then bitter. Heavy, syrupy feel.

Opaque and inky brown, the restrained aroma hints at espresso. On the palate, it’s a wash of espresso, hazelnut and cola, with a pleasantly fleeting sweetness followed by a long, herbal finish.

90–95 pts. : October, 2005

An initial aroma of bittersweet dark chocolate, orange peel and herbs; air contact stimulates scents of flowers, jasmine, bark , forest, honey and very light quinine. The palate entry is intensely sweet and floral; at midpalate the taste profile turns cocoa-like with notes of citrus rind, molasses, brown sugar and grass. Concludes sweet, thick and luscious.

Made since 1868 by the Averna family in Caltanissetta, Sicily. At 29% alcohol, it opens with a dark amber or expresso color and emits intense aromas of exotic spice, wood, maple syrup, cinnamon and dried orange peel. The mouthfeel is velvety, creamy and dense.

A defining amaro. An opaque, deep brown/black color. Smells tantalizingly of bittersweet dark chocolate, orange peel, and herbs in the first aromatic go-around; further air contact stimulates aromas of flowers, jasmine, bark, forest, honey, and very light quinine. The palate entry is intensely sweet and more floral than herbal; at midpalate, the taste profile turns cocoa-like with other notes of citrus rind, molasses, brown sugar, and grass. Concludes sweet, thick, and luscious.
