I didn't have Maurin Quina, so I used Byrrh, but used Maraska Maraschino rather than Luxardo in hope of replacing some of the cherry notes in the Maurin Quina. 4 stars as made.

Great showcase for Maurin Quina's cherry/wine/brandy flavor with the right ratio of Maraschino to provide cherry pit essence without overboosting. Peychaud's works harmoniously with the rest. Bourbon (rather than spicier rye which I often prefer in other drinks) adds the appropriate mellow balance and flavor. It just works.
