Sangre De Vida Reposado Tequila

Cheaper and Easier

I ordered six bottles of premium bourbon from Chips and the process was cheaper and easier than going local like I usually do. I'll definitely order again!

Amaro Alta Verde
Samuel Carter
Very interesting Amaro/Bitter

Alta Verde is interesting. A light color/transparent liquor, it has a very strong pine/resin/gentian flavor with some bracing sweetness (but not enough to overpower the bitterness). So far, I have found it to be interesting for a number of applications. Would recommend for anyone building a large 'bitter' repository, or needing a light-colored amaro for cocktails.
