93 • Fee Brothers Rhubarb Bitters $5.35/150 ml.
Very attractive aromas suggest tropical fruit custard, lemon meringue and blossoms, and strawberry and melon sorbets with a fruity sweet palate and nice balanced and a nicely astringent citrus rind, gentian, and stalky rhubarb finish. Impressive. In the pisco sour, the sweet citrus and cream notes thoroughly compliment and integrate the cocktail adding a lovely floral and deep fruit dimension to the affair. This bitters is a no-brainer for crafting clever cocktails. (tasted on Apr-21-2013)
89 • The Bitter Truth Original Celery Bitters $16/200 ml.
Pure celery and lemon pepper aromas and flavors with a dry, light body and a lingering anise seed and rooty bitterness. Nicely constructed. In the pisco sour, the effect is to add a savory, umami layer to the citrus and egg creaminess. Very subtle in the nature, but it makes the cocktail a little more, dry, serious, and deeply layered. Will be fun to experiment with this one. Try in tequila cocktails or Bloody Marys. (tasted on Apr-21-2013)
86 • Scrappy's Bitters Celery Bitters $20/5 oz.
Bold celery salt on a poppy seed hot dog bun aroma with turmeric, clay, crayon and a slight ironed fabric note. On the palate, very dimensional and stalky with an earthy, fresh out of the ground, celery quality. In the pisco sour, the effect is to amplify the bitterness of the citrus, the pepperiness of the pisco, and the astringency of the finish. This is a bit of a clash in this cocktail, but it's very pure and earthy celery character should work better in a more savory cocktail. (tasted on Apr-21-2013)
