  • Very smooth and balanced. Only reason I might not make it often is that I seldom have all the ingredients. If you halve this recipe, each of the 1/3 ounce ingredients becomes a 1-teaspoon addition. — ★★★★★
  • Very nice! Used Old Overholt rye and cynar 70 proof. Subbed Cointreau for Grand Marnier; also subbed Amaro Nonino for Amer Picon. — ★★★★★
  • Well balanced with identifiable parts creating a satisfying whole. Use 1/2 oz dry curaçao instead of Grand Marnier, Carpano Formula Antica instead of Punt E Mes, and Appleton Estates instead of Smith & Cross. — ★★★★★
  • Quite nice. I like the way the bitter ingredients play off the funk of the S&C. — ★★★★★

Is that supposed to be two *dashes* Angostura bitters?



Dan commented on 3/08/2018:

This drink is pretty big and seems a touch over-the-top complex. I simplified the concept and tried:
1 1/2 oz rye, 1/2 oz each Smith & Cross, Punt e Mes, and Amer Boudreau. I liked it a lot.

 


I do agree, but all the ingredients works very well together.
Did you try the complete recipe ?


Tried today: 1,5 oz Rye + 0,5 Smith & cross + 3/4 punt & mes + 1/3 Cynar + 1/3 Picon + 1 dash Cinnamon syrup

The syrup soften angles
