Really very nice. Rich and

Really very nice. Rich and flavorful but not too high alcohol. I cut back the honey to half an ounce and found it rich enough. I skipped the grapefruit garnish, but got a grapefruit flavor anyway, and think it would have been a good addition. The bonded was the right choice for me.
