  • I usually like Stew's creations...but this one misses for me. Feels like it's missing something. Apologies for not leaving more helpful feedback. — ★★
  • Used rye -- Excellent, this may be my new winter drink. — ★★★★★
  • I went for rye instead of bourbon, it stands up well to the dark rum. Great with an orange or grapefruit twist. Fantastic drink. — ★★★★★

Sounds great! You do mean 2 dashes of bitters, not 2 oz, correct?


Whoa! Sure do, thanks. This one is particularly delicious, yeah.
