  • It finishes bitter because of the Cynar, but I wouldn't call it harsh. Used Four Roses Small Batch. — ★★★★
  • Good
  • Note to self: 5 dr = bit less than a dash. 4.5.
  • One of the more interesting variants in the crowded whiskey & sweet orange category. Maybe a touch harsh on the backend (depending on bourbon I suppose).

Seriously  my favorite cocktail to introduce guests to amaros and floral elements. perfectly balanced. excellent mouth feel. killer nose. i like it with a big rock and a long tightly curled thin orange twist.
