Day 35, checking in on the progress of Batch 1. I think we were surprised how pretty the flavors are so soon. Travis Smith (our distiller) used the term "golden sunshine" to describe it, which I think is a phenomenal description. This is an amaro that is after my heart; I think our second amaro (the fernet, which is in test trials) will be made more to Patrick's palate (read: gnarly). Dominated by citrus notes, I return over and over to the term "alpine" as the rosemary has asserted itself since Day 1. Rhubarb flavors on the mid-palate are framed by the distinct presence of myrrh. Our little bit of amber sunshine will continue to rest in barrel for another few months. Truly exciting!
