New South Wales, AUSTRALIA
$79. 99

ABV: 28.5%
This special edition Mr Black is inspired by the aromas and flavours common to both coffee and amaro: fruit, spice and herbs. Fourteen botanicals are employed including orange, lemon, lime, gentian, angelica, coriander, lime and grapefruit.

Head distiller Philip Moore explains, “Amaro is essentially a botanical drink, similar to a gin or absinth, so blending that idea with the specialty coffee craftsmanship of Mr Black was something I really enjoyed developing.” The result is a modern interpretation of the caffeinated cocktail, ideal for mixing with soda, tonic or enjoying neat after a meal.

Tasting note: Burnt umber with sienna edges. Fresh coffee beans, fruity dark chocolate, a touch of jaffa and orange peel on the nose while cocoa and citrus peel complement strong roasted coffee accents in a silky, gently bittersweet delivery. Chocolate box, coffee and sweet spices continue through the finish. Ends with hints of coffee, gentian and bitter peel reigning in the mid palate sweetness. 28.5% Alc./Vol.
