  • Made with mole bitters and the chilli is a bit overwhelming but bracingof a winter night. Rest of ingredients work really well for me. One to try again with real choc extract — ★★★★
  • Bravely substituted 1/2 oz Meletti + 5 ds Mole bitters. Would use 2 ds Mole bitters next time. Worth trying to find specified ingredients, probably. — ★★★

I used a different fino and another, organic brand of chocolate bitters, otherwise all ingredients specified. It's tasty and interesting. There's something just a bit incongruous about the mix. The scent of orange and chocolate is delightful, however. 4/5.


Taking a guess here, it's that the Fino is too dry for the other ingredients - it 'leans out" the rich Bourbon, and adds saline/vinyl notes that are what you're finding odd. If you have some, try a dry Oloroso, which should be more rich and woody to pair with the Bourbon.
