From other users
  • Smooth, good sipper, pleasantly bitter, complex. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Dark & delicious. Not too bitter. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Perfectly fine Manhattan substitute, but it seems a little less pungent and slightly weaker. Perhaps it's because I used fino sherry instead of amontillado. But I'm happy to have it. — ☆☆☆
  • Delicious. Complex and balanced, Bitter, not painful. Cynar employed very successfully here. Used Valdespino Tio Diego Amontillado, but I imagine Lustau Los Arcos would be okay. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Earthy, chocolatey, sophisticated. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Excellent. — ☆☆☆☆☆

Delicious. The Amontillado I

Delicious. The Amontillado I used was not particularly dry, and even then it wasn't too sweet. I used Regans' orange bitters since I think their function is to add depth and complexity, rather than just adding bright citrus notes. The bitters come through nicely on the nose. I used Wild Turkey 101 rye. A higher proof rye keeps counteract the other low-alcohol components. Thanks for pointing this one out.

Just had this again at

Just had this again at Flatiron Lounge. What a drink. The spice of the rye and vermouth create a Bénédictine-like effect and the Amontilado adds a savory chocolate finish. Delicious front to back.
