  • Really complex and well balanced, with a long finish. I didn't have creme de cacao so I used 1/4 oz simple syrup and a few dashes of Xocolatl bitters instead, which may have made it better. — ★★★★★
  • Really nice. Used Rittenhouse the first time. Might also try it using a rye with more prominent vanilla notes, like Sazerac or Wild Turkey. — ★★★★★

A pretty good use of Meletti, something that's hard to tame.

This is a beautiful cocktail. It’s not often I add a recipe to my favorites list before I’ve finished drinking my first glass of it. This one qualifies.
