  • oh PLEASE try it
  • Made this with Meletti instead of Cynar - it was nice! Need a few minutes to settle I think - everything was very segregated at first but it comes together nicely. — ★★★
  • Flavors work together in interesting ways. A burnt taste from the rum, and I get dried apricots too. A rather substantial burny bitterness in the finish which makes this feel like a serious drink. — ★★★

Overall, I haven't loved Smith & Cross, but this wasn't bad.

Smith & Cross is definitely not for everyone.

Did not have Smith & Cross so used Plantation 5 star. No complaints here.
