Has anybody tried out Bitterman's Elemakule bitters? The allspice and cinnamon combo seems promising for tiki cocktails: http://store.thebostonshaker.com/index.php?product=CIBI-TIKI

The Boston Shaker is a great online shop BTW, they also offer the recently resurrected Boker's Bitters.

I like them.

Definitely you do taste the spice a little bit more clearly in these then in the Ango I feel.

Very good in almost all drinks that call for Ango, they do give a different flavor but in a good way.

I think they are worth trying, I enjoy them and use them when wanting to change things up or when I want to create something unique.

I just picked up a bottle of the Elemakule Tiki bitters on a whim and was curious what to use it in. So, I searched and found this thread. It has a really awesome smell and I feel it will probably be a lot stronger than the Angostura. So what have you guys used it in?

I was considering using it in this recipe i found on Imbibe Magazine's website.

I've been using them as a float on top of drinks that have Pernod to enhance the aroma. I'm not sure I'm tasting them though as most exotic cocktails in that category have many ingredients and a complex flavor profile. I'll be sure to try the Shipwreck!

I like them. Just picked some up a few weeks ago and haven't used it in too many things, but I agree it is a good changeup from Ango.

Bitter Truth's Jerry Thomas' Own Decanter Bitters also has a big dose of allspice in the flavor profile.
