  • Way too sweet as written. Used Laphroag, 1/4 each of the sweet ingredients, Becherovka for the syrup, and 1/2 oz Lemon. Very good as adjusted. — ★★★★★

Curated slightly to conform to style guidelines. Please capitalize and include garnish in ingredient list. Also, I suggest you remove any brands that aren't essential. For example, I can see that Cherry Heering is important, but wouldn't another cognac, single malt, or sweet vermouth work fine? Thanks for posting?

Good call. The adjustment was made and it is much better.
