  • Made with fernet branca, nice, unsurprisingly toronto-esque.
  • Kind of like a more complex, herbal and concentrated manhattan. The fernet (I used fernet Branca) definitely stands out but not overpowering. Nice balance.
  • Very Nice. Used Fernet Branca. Spicy with a menthol finish. Not overpowering. 43 adds plenty of sweetness to balance the fernet and rye.
