  • Herbal upfront but the Chartreuse fades nicely to reveal the round fall spices. Well-balanced — ★★★★
  • Solid. Made with Mischief's Mariner Rum. Very similar to the Last Word or other Green Chartruese + lemon/lime. Next time I might increase the allspice dram which I was excited about but which didn't play a huge role in this. — ★★★
  • Not a stunner in looks, but a tasty way to showcase chartreuse. — ★★★★
  • Deeply complex, with the herbal Chartreuse contrasting with the earthy pie-spice flavors of the Allspice Dram and maple. Excellent with Ron Zacapa 23. — ★★★★★

Comments

perfectly balanced- love the allspice dram and chartreuse combo. I used the low end maple syrup measure and it was plenty.

I had Meyer's, Smith and Cross, and regular old Bacardi on hand. I went with the Smith & Cross and I don't know if 1.5 oz of this rum was the best choice for this cocktail. Next time I'll try a more neutral, lower proofed rum or some of each.

Half Myers's and half Smith & Cross sounds like it would be good. I love (love, love) Smith & Cross, so I'd be happy with all Smith & Cross, but it sure would be resplendent with rum hogo!
