Fernet Francisco collaboration series #8 with Willet Distillery, having rested in ex-Rye Barrels for 6 months. The Willet rye aroma is followed by a well-balanced captivating medley of Rhubarb, Cinnamon, clove, fresh orange peel, and California bay leaves that are a delight on the palate. The intermingling of Willett rye barrel-soaked oak and complex herbs has made this a superbly round and rich Fernet. The bitterness is balanced with sweet, yet no more than is needed with very little cane sugar added: it is not a syrupy Fernet. 12 Handpicked local herbs and botanicals. Bottled at 40% ABV.
