The Amarillo® was discovered somewhat by accident and is developed/owned by Virgil Gamache Farms. It develops, and they are rare in this case, flavors that match the aromas; in other words, it "tastes" what it smells, no surprises. Amarillo® has a high level of myrcene oil which gives it some pretty crazy aromas and flavors! It is a rock star in the world of the "craft": to discover absolutely, you will not be disappointed!
