An excellent drink that rewards high quality ingredients (blending in some longer aged cognac/armagnac/calvados adds considerable depth). It skews sweet but the richness of the base spirits helps to balance. I find that about half of the amount of maple syrup suffices (but I tend to use darker maple syrup than perhaps the original D&Co spec did). Love this drink for a slow sipping postprandial and/or nightcap.
