Background & History

"I created this Negroni variation immediately after I first tasted Smith & Cross rum. Only Carpano Antica has the balls to stand up to its intensity." - Joaquín Simó, Death & Co

Notes & Review

Smith & Cross is strong at 57% ABV and Carpano tries its best to tame it but it still comes through pretty boldly. It's a nice cocktail for those who enjoy rum but I'd prefer a classic Negroni most days. The aftertaste was a bit metallic to me, maybe overly bitter.
