A highly recommended short

A highly recommended short trip for "The Long Journey." For Cynar lovers, this drink is a disappointment. Ditto for Bonal lovers. Likewise for lovers of a good cocktail. Its taste is light, and there's no "body." The Sherry overwhelms the Cynar, and the Bonal. Were I to try and rescue "The Long Journey," my first step would be to reduce the amount of Sherry to 1 oz. I would also either trade in the celery bitter for another, or add another--probably the latter.

I rate this drink at 2.5, and call it a work in progress.
