  • Nice. Like a drier Manhattan, lighter on its feet. 3.5, if I could. — ☆☆☆
  • Dry and bitter, in a good way.A bit milk-chocolatey on the swallow. — ☆☆☆

I had one of these at Bergamot in Somerville, MA (Boston area) and it was stunning.

In Regarding Cocktails, Chad Solomon claimed credit for this Brooklyn variation. There, the recipe calls for 2 oz rittenhouse, 1 oz dolin dry, 2 t luxardo maraschino, and 1 t cynar.  That's also the ohgo.sh recipe.  Perhaps this is more definitive?
