Very nice. Plantation

Very nice. Plantation overproof and cointreau. A bit sweet. But these are not the proper ingredients.

4 stars and will try again.

Three and a half star.  Agree

Three and a half star.  Agree with avoiding caramely rum.. I did it with barbancourt and still a bit too sweet.  Would probably dial back the cynar to 3/4.
