- Delicious. Made with Few rye, Havana Club Anejo 7 rum, Claude Chatelier XO Cognac, and Tippleman's burnt molasses sugar syrup. Great surprising smooth combo of alcohols. Bit sweet - I'd reduce Tippleman's a tipple.
- Quite like this as an Old Fashioned riff. I approximated the syrup with a scant 1/2 oz. of turbinado syrup and a small dash of pimento dram. Like the other commenters said, this is on the sweet side.
