Fernet Francisco collaboration series #8 with Willet Distillery, having rested in ex-Rye Barrels for 6 months. The Willet rye aroma is followed by a well balanced captivating medley of Rhubarb, Cinnamon, clove, fresh orange peel and California bay leaves that are a delight on the palate. The intermingling of Willett rye barrel soaked oak and complex herbs has made this a superbly round and rich Fernet. The bitterness is balanced with sweet, yet no more than is needed with very little cane sugar added: it is not a syrupy Fernet.
12 Hand picked local herbs and botanicals.
Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, mint extract and a little vanilla. The palate has the "Fernet" bitterness, with mint, some all spice, and orange peel. The barrel seems to round and soften a bit from the regular.
Bottle Size: 750mL
