From other users
  • Made with Dewars 12 and the curator's proportions (6:1:1:1). Still a sweet drink but nice. Campari a nice brightener (color- and taste-wise). — ☆☆☆☆
  • Decrease accoutrements to 0.3, 0.25 for Cynar. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Not bad. Would drop the Campari slightly to see what that would do. — ☆☆☆

Tried this with Bowmore

Tried this with Bowmore Legend. Nice, but a bit sweet, even with an extra 1/2 of Scotch. I'd try 2 oz Scotch and 1/3 oz each of the rest. Not as elegant a ratio, but it would be nice in metric. :)
