  • Made with Don Q 151 rum and added 2 ds fee bros rhubarb bitters. Very good use of zirbenz and well balanced with cynar and rum - not too bitter, not too piney. Very nice! — ★★★★
  • Very bittter/hogo Lost the pine completely. Used the Smith & Cross / Babancourt substitution for Scarlet Ibis. Would use a sweeter rum + more Pine. — ★★
  • Would give it 3.5 stars if I could. Might try it with a sweeter rum, as someone else suggested. I like bitter, but tastes a little sharp as is. — ★★★
  • Very innovative. The woody pine flavors are obvious, but not overpowering. The lemon blends the flavors and take a bit of the bit out of the bitter, while temperating the sweetness of the Cynar and liqueur. Great drink. — ★★★★
