  • A bit sweet — ☆☆☆☆
  • Subbed curry leaf syrup for orgeat. Nutty and sweet old fashioned. — ☆☆☆
  • The accents still let the rye show through. — ☆☆☆☆
  • I don’t find it too sweet. I think it’s pretty rye forward and the Black Walnut Bitters really balance it. — ☆☆☆

Surprisingly, all those

Surprisingly, all those accent flavors still let the rye show through. Good balance though it may be a bit sweeter than some would prefer.

Since I'm not a big Aperol

Since I'm not a big Aperol fan, I made this with Bigallet China-China in lieu of that. I also added 2 ds of El Guapo Chicory-Pecan bitters instead of the Black Walnut. I liked the resulting drink, but found it a bit too sweet for my taste. I added something approaching 1/4 oz of Eda Rhyne Rustic Black Walnut Nocino (which is fairly bitter) and this brought the sweetness into perfect balance for my taste.
