  • Underrated! Well balanced but everything shines through ***** — ★★★★★
  • tasty....next time will only use 1 dash of grapefruit bitters — ★★★★
  • Interesting how the floral elderflower stays present but is recontextualized with the tobacco/caramel seriousness. Sweet coffee on the finish.
  • Made with Old Overholt rye and Carpano Antica Formula. Tasty boozy, maybe for fall. 2nd version upped rye to 1.75. Also good. — ★★★★
  • Used Wild Turkey 101 rye and Fee Bros Grapefruit bitters. Easy to drink. Rate 4.0
  • Sprightly! Nice sort of Manhattan-plus, with a spring in its step. — ★★★★

Flavors are nice, but for my palate, this is too sweet as written. Next time I'll play with the proportions a bit, probably increasing the rye to 2 oz. and/or dialing down the St. Germain and Punt e Mes.
