2 oz Jamaican rum, Appleton 12 (or other blended aged rum)
1⁄4 oz Tawny port (Taylor Fladgate 20)
1 Maraschino cherry (as garnish)

Stir and strain, coupe, cherry garnish.


Balanced bitterness. Smooth and appropriately sweet (to my taste). The cinnamon and caramelized grape taste of the port come through at different times.
