Proof66 Notes

Amaro Montenegro was founded in 1885 in Bologna, Italy by Stanislao Cobianchi. The name was an homage to then Princess Helen of Montenegro and her marriage to Victor Emmanuel III. The recipe is said to be unchanged in the century-plus production and consists of a maceration of over 40 herbs and spices followed by an aging in oak casks.

A beautiful, well balanced spirit...a lot of people drink this neat, but I love it on the rocks. This is something I could enjoy every day.

I was not expecting much but I found a bitter I can enjoy neat. It's quite different from anything I have tasted before but it reminds me of other bitters like Angostura and herb liquors like the Green Chartreuse.

Yum. This is a kinder, gentler Amaro, but with a finish that reminds you that it is a bitters. Starts slightly sweet but not overly so with a light mouth feel with orange and cherry, then moves on to earthy spice with cassia bark, allspice, coriander, tea and tobacco, with a wormwood finish. Lighter and with a more bitter finish than Averna Amaro, and good at room temp while Averna likes to be in the freezer. Otherwise they are neck and neck
