  • Mostly tastes like bourbon, slightly sweet, slightly bitter, slightly herbal. — ★★★
  • I used Rittenhouse and had to sub a touch of cherry liqueur plus Mole bitters for the cherry bark bitters. I liked the drink and the concept, although I thought the Maraschino was a bit dominant. Next time try less Maraschino — ★★★

Sounds interesting. It's a bit of a big drink by current standards. It could be easily scaled back with 2oz : 2 tsp : 1 tsp : 1 tsp, for the so inclined.

Nice. Maybe less Maraschino and scale to a more manageable size? I split one, so it either makes one huge or two tiny drinks.

Very nice. Used Rebel Yell bourbon (my go-to cheapie). Split it into two small drinks for me and the missus on a Friday night. Sweet, subtle flavors on a long finish.
