  • Great strong drink, can taste the Chartreuse but it's not overpowering
  • Prefer with more rye: 1.5, 0.5, 0.5, 0.5.
  • Try with Luxardo.
  • Color is not as attractive as a Last Word. Tastes good though!
  • Right up there with the Last Word for great use of Chartreuse and Maraschino.
  • Slightly fruity, refreshing, unexpected, strongly herbal. — ★★★★★

Bumped up the rye and backed off on the lemon juice: 1.0, 0.5, 0.75, 0.75.

This is good, with maraschino coming through strong
