  • A slightly better Manhattan. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Interesting. It’s a bit of fuss for something that essentially tastes like bourbon. Nothing wrong with bourbon, of course. — ☆☆☆

Had to make a few brand swaps

Had to make a few brand swaps (3:1 Weller 12 & Dickel Rye, Cocchi Torino, Luxardo Apricot), but I enjoyed this a great deal. Will definitely be making it again... Maybe even a few minutes from now!
