Luxardo’s Fernet amaro isn’t new by any means — the stuff’s been around forever — but after my amaro story from a few months back, I’ve been actively sampling new-to-me iterations whenever possible. This one’s a true fernet, meaning that it’s going to be more astringent/bitter than a typical amaro, and I’m curious to see how it compares to Fernet Branca. Besides, a few days from now I’m likely to be drinking exclusively gin for at least a week, so all the more reason to enjoy other stuff now, right?
