Suggested usage

I’d use as a main 1%-1.5%, Background 0.5%-1%, 0.25%-0.5%

I’d use with Alcohol, Tobacco, Bakeries and beverages like lemonade, may also work with some citrus fruits.

Summary

This isn’t a very bitter bitters, there is no real bitterness present and none of the usual notes such as bergamot, this is more like a blend of botanicals and herbs and spices, there is a low smoky woody taste in the background very much like a smoked oak wood, there is a very slight cherry wood note deep in the background and a very light sandalwood like taste along with a few other herbs/spices that I am unable to identify. This would mix very well with tobaccos to add an interesting depth to the flavour, I would also use this alcohols like Gin and Whisky/Bourbon as well as Lemonades

Flavorah recommended usage – Start at 0.5%, Mix Between 0.5%-4%
