Odd flavor profile...

Odd flavor profile... strangely miny... Not bad, but I'm guessing this would taste very different depending on the specific spirits. I used Espolon anejo whiskey barrel aged tequila, Clement select barrel rhum, punt e mes, and Rothman & Winter apricot. I'm sure that a "real" vermouth would make it less bitter and more enjoyable. Also the tequila I used is kinda specific.
