The smell of this whiskey reminded me of an apple – sweet, tart and a bit woody. The first taste knocked me back a bit – this spirit is 92 proof. It’s surprisingly smooth for that high a proof, but on its own, it’s potent stuff.
Campari is a translucent dark red liqueur that’s most commonly drunk by itself as an aperitif (before a meal) or in cocktails like the Negroni. It’s made from herbs and fruit, and is often referred to as bitter.
