  • Enjoyable but something of an acquired taste. Not for everyone. Pleasantly easy to make, and one big cube was not out of place. (N.B.: We stirred with crushed ice, not cubed.) — ★★★★
  • Mezcal was slightly overpowering - reduce to 1 oz — ★★★
  • Smoky & yummy — ★★★★
  • Very smoky; I used mole bitters which was probably a little much. — ★★★★
  • Complex, slightly smokey, subtle chocolate. A wonderful, rich, complex cocktail. Could easily take a big cube. — ★★★★

This is complex and I think actually quite approachable. Pretty impressively balanced for the players but I suspect regular cynar would suffer. Very nice.
