Remarkably similar in taste to "Blood & Sand." I was surprised given Blood & Sand has scotch as its base liquor, while Blood and Famine uses Bushmill's Irish whiskey for its base liquor (I chose Black Bush because of its strong, sturdy body notes). I also used Dolin Rouge for Blood and Sands' sweet vermouth. Black Bush manages to make its presence known over the other ingredients, that are also in Blood & Sand, which explains why both taste somewhat similar. The Blood & Sand is somewhat sweeter, as I used Dewar's scotch (a pleasant, light in body, blended scotch). In short, if you like one, you'll like the other. I rated Blood & Famine at 4.0.</p>


Nice and sweet, but not too sweet. I like it better than blood and sand! I used Tullamore Dew, Chinato vermouth and fresh squeezed orange - lovely!
