Cynar is like Malort Lite…it has an up-front sweetness that dissolves away within seconds, leaving behind a bitter, herby taste. Made from 13 ingredients, including artichokes, Cynar is definitely pretty strange-tasting, but way more palatable than Malort. It’s definitely kind of off-beat, but not as revolting as some of the other strange things we’ve tasted over the last few months.
