  • A bit sweet - will reduce creme de cacao in the future. — ★★★
  • a bit medicinal, menthol — ★★★
  • Kind of in Manhattan territory in effect. Pleasant tingle, but a bit sweet (perhaps due to my relatively cheap bourbon and cacao). — ★★★★
  • 3/2/15 — ★★★
  • cio caiaro — ★★★★★

Not bad, but the bourbon (Maker's 46) dominated. Maybe forget the fiddly 3/8 measures and go to a full 1/4 for both next time.
