  • Right up there with the Sazerac; must try if that's your drink — ★★★★★
  • A nice take on the drink, has a pleasant zing in there with the booziness. Still prefer a cognac/rye Sazerac. — ★★★

Comments

Both incarnations are great, but I actually prefer to vermouth-containing one. I think the dilution and extra absinthe both pair with the syrupy sweetness of Benedectine much better.
