From other users
  • Sophisticated and well-balanced (Vida held in check). — ☆☆☆☆
  • Tasty for sure, grape is very present on the sip. Much as I love Cocchi Americano, I suspect something more bitter may better fill this role, or I should use Regan's instead of Fee's for the orange bitters! — ☆☆☆☆
  • Accidentally put drambuie instead of Benedictine so added that too and still pretty good. Tried again with Benedictine and didn't like it as much! — ☆☆
  • Delicious even with two subs (necessity rather than by choice) : Yellow chartreuse for Benedictine Regan's for Fee's — ☆☆☆☆
