  • Bigallet China China can be found online and is used by some as a PIcon Amer substitute.
  • Great use of all these ingredients. Used Torani/CioCiaro in place of Bigallet. — ☆☆☆☆☆

I really like the flavor

I really like the flavor profile and richness of this.  For me, it was perhaps a touch sweet (this using high rye Old Grand-Dad Bonded Bourbon and Herbsaint Original 100 Proof), so I might dial the bourbon up to 1.25 oz on subsequent makings.  Using a barspoon of Herbsaint Original pushed the absinthe taste right up to the line where it was starting to become too dominant for me (and perhaps over it for some), so if using a higher proof anise spirit than the presumably specified 90 proof Herbsaint, consider a scant barspoon.
