|Color||Cherry cough syrup colored in the bottle, bright red (read, REALLY bright red) in a drink.|
|Aroma||Sweeter than angostura bitters with anise and slight cherry, nutmeg and clove flavors.|
|Finish||A must have item for a bar for either a Sazerac or other drinks that call for Peychauds or as a specified bitter by a customer- otherwise people will wonder what happened to their drink as this bitter has a very distinctive taste. Goes well with cognac or rye-based drinks in particular.|
