Bitters of the Month: Spiced Cherry
Woodford Reserve, based in Kentucky, produces a Spiced Cherry Bitters. It's definitely spicy, similar to the Aztec Chocolate we tried a while back. In fact, I wonder if the two might work well in combination.
We tried the Spiced Cherry in a Manhattan. I was disappointed. Apart from a tingle on the lips, the spice didn't come through very well. It was less orangey than Angostura - not necessarily a bad thing but a noticeable difference.
