  • Yeah, awfully sweet, really too syrupy, but enjoyable finish as you'd expect. — ☆☆☆
  • This one needs some work. Very sweet as written. I swapped ratios for whiskey and benedictine. That helps. May try with one large cube next time. — ☆☆☆

Way too sweet for me, as I

Way too sweet for me, as I suspected it would be. This is a cocktail for someone who likes to sip Benedictine neat. I inverted the ratio of Benedictine to rye and added 1/2 oz of lemon and thought it was then enjoyable, but not spectacular.

I agree with Dan. This cocktail is very very sweet. But I disagree with the opinion, and I think it is delightful! If you like a sweet pow, like I do, then enjoy.

Although I'm half tempted to

Although I'm half tempted to see if anyone from those days remembers the original spec, I've been playing with it now that the weather has turned. 1.25 Benedictine, 1 Rye, 1/4 Fernet, bsp Campari starts to come into better focus I think. Thanks,  Zachary
