  • Rittenhouse, Antica, Cherry Heering, & St Elizabeth is what I had on hand & I loved result. Slight nuttiness was nearly overwhelmed by the dram; will do the lightest of rinses next time. If you like this try Black Lodge too. — ★★★★★

I made this using an apple and cardamom infused applejack and an 86-proof whiskey—it turned out delicious, but my specs threw the sweetness off. I added an extra half ounce of rye, and I love it.
