Master distiller Elio Carta has done it again, inviting us to experience the sensorial delights of his beloved Sardinia via a well-crafted spirit. Amaro Bomba is infused with Elio's careful selection of native Sardinian botanicals cultivated in his father's garden (hypericum (St John's Wort), Santolina, Thyme, and Mugwort (Artemisia)), also some foraged in the coastal maquis where encounters with wild boars are not uncommon.
But, the most special and star ingredient of Amaro Bomba Carta is the unique and rare Sardinian Corbezzolo honey, a nectar that is especially difficult to obtain and is revered for its potent healing properties, as well as its exotic aroma and flavour. The honey perfectly enhances the botanical complexity of Amaro Bomba Carta.
Intense dark brown in colour, it smells of resins, pine nuts and sea plants, with important and deep balsamic veins: mint, eucalyptus and bitter chocolate blend with dark honey and spices, all seasoned with Mediterranean scrub. It has a powerful taste, with a marked bitter vein of officinal herbs, essences of myrtle, juniper and cloves. Impressive is the echo of the long persistence, which encompasses tastes that are mineral, saline, balsamic and toasted which leave the mouth purring for several minutes after swallowing.
Each bottle is carefully wrapped and labelled by hand. Serve after dinner with a single cube of ice and let the taste envelop the senses. - Enoteca Sileno Importer
