    I think I just found my favorite vermouth. Nice aromatic vanilla taste with a slight bitter kick at the end,, just to remind you that this can be used as a dry or a sweet vermouth. Works really well with a bitter bourbon. Really brings boulevardier cocktails to life.

    Life's too short for cheap vermouth. Absolutely the only vermouth worth drinking straight.

    My favorite vermouth.

    Yummy, but Cocchi Vermouth di Torino is 2/3 the price and just as good by itself and even better in Manhattans.

    It’s good, but note sure if it’s worth the much bigger price compared to other vermouth. Worth trying at least once to form your own opinion.
