  • Nice. Really accentuates the raisin-y notes from the sherry. — ★★★★
  • Used Mt Gay Eclipse and Fee Bro’s Aztec Chocolate...good but a little one dimensional. — ★★★
  • Unsuccessful subs: Barbancourt 8hr, Amaro Lucano, Amontillado. Try again with correct ingredients.

Comments

Subbed El Dorado 5 & Flor de Cana 7 for the Appleton, and Trevor Jones 'Jonesy' Tawny "Port" for the Sherry. It's alright, sort of flip-like, but without the richness. I wanted nutmeg, but I want nutmeg with all flips. Meh.


Subbed with amontillado, sans mole bitters; would not advise doing that


Yeah, that East India Solera is relatively sweet - PX cut with some Amontillado would be better.  Thanks,  Zachary


Just reading all of the other comments and tasting notes, this is one that might not stand up well to substitutions. All of the ingredients are so unique...although I do hear the comment about trying a P/X-Amontillado split.
