From other users
  • Slow sipping mouthful of smoke, spice, menthol, and bitter. Enjoy. One of the best drinks I've created. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Smokey, almost buries the fernet branca. Very smooth. I made it with noilly prat and lagavulin 16. — ☆☆☆
  • Interesting, powerful sipper even with my relatively cheap Islay substitute. Could dial back the fernet with these ingredients a touch. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Very good flavor combination, slightly too dry, maybe use Antica Formula — ☆☆☆☆
  • Made with Ardbeg. As aggressive as advertised but I was a little dissapointed that the only thing I got was smoke and menthol. — ☆☆

Uncompromising, unforgiving,

Uncompromising, unforgiving, delightfully smooth. This one really speaks to the part of me that's a former cannabis user, which may or may not make you happy. 4.5/5
