  • With a bit more Cynar, 3.5. — ★★★
  • Made as described. Delicious and well-balanced. A nice tiki-ish craft feel. — ★★★★
  • Increased lemon to 3/4 oz and sub'd Becherovka for Cinnamon syrup. A nice Tiki drink. Might be better with Rye and maybe more Cyner. — ★★★

Meh...  This looked great on paper but ended up feeling a bit rough.  The component parts didn't play off each other as much as just seem to be bouncing around in my mouth trying to figure out what they were supposed to taste like.  Yeah, that description may sound a bit weird, but it's not inaccurate.  Maybe this would be better if shaken and served over crushed ice, like a straight-up tiki drink?  As it is, it's a case of the thing just not coming together all that well.
