From other users
  • Made it with Cocchi vermouth. Fernet is present, esp. on the finish, but doesn't commandeer the sip. Manhattan/Brooklyn for a more adventurous palate. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Significantly better than a Manhattan, but still not something I'd usually drink. You can taste the fernet and maraschino, as well as some apple. However it's still quite strong — ☆☆☆

Meehan's Bartender Manual (p. 363) specs the vermouth as Vya sweet (and suggests Cocchi Vermouth di Torino as a good option) and Luxardo maraschino.
