Massively herbaceous and medicinal with a deep bitter kick. An acquired taste well worth acquiring!
I'm here in Bolivia and am trying this now. I'm close to the Argentine border and the most common form is Fernet Branca. This is nicer and less bitter. Don't attempt to drink neat, you need to mix with Coca Cola!
Overall, excellent. I Googled this to see if it was available in the UK. Glad it is although I paid about £7 for my bottle here - thanks UK Government for all the taxes!
