Built as indicated, except using Rothman's pear liqueur instead of Merlet.  I found it much too sweet for my palate (which I kinda guessed given the build).  Tried again with 2 oz rum, still too sweet.  Adding .5 oz bourbon to the base recipe (in my case the high rye OGD 100) dried it out and was an improvement for me without changing the flavor profile too much.
