From other users
  • Made with Beefeater, American rye, and Amer Sauvage. As expected, the gentian was strident at first but became more likable. Aperol pulls peanut butter out of the whiskey. Whiskey + gin worked better than I expected. — ☆☆☆☆
  • One of my favorites. I use whatever Rye I have on hand in lieu of anything particularly Canadian. It’s a very well balanced drink and its a great way to introduce someone to Suze. — ☆☆☆☆

Made with Forty Creek Barrel

Made with Forty Creek Barrel Select whisky, London Hill dry gin, and Contratto Bitter instead of the Aperol because that's all I had (it's too assertive, if you sub it then reduce the proportion). The first sip is definitely a powerful bitter punch but the sweetness of the Forty Creek shines through. I would never have believed that the drink contains no sweet liquors or vermouths!
