I tried this with Clement

I tried this with Clement Rhum Agricole and Hardy Pineau des Charentes. It was good enough, but didn't wow me. I also tried cognac in place of the rhum agricole, and that was promising, a sidecar of sorts. Worth revisiting and tinkering a bit.

Bonal has a Pineau-like base

Bonal has a Pineau-like base of lightly fermented grape must fortified with brandy, and some flavor notes in common with Pineau, but it's much more assertive, so my riff tastes quite different. I'm open to suggestions for a name.

I made this with Hardy Pineau

I made this with Hardy Pineau and with Dusquene Rhum Agricole Blanc (100 proof). Will try it next with an aged Agricole but this balanced out perfectly for me.  Lean and even a little dry, I would say my result here with the Blanc is good enough that I would suggest others try it -- especially anyone who finds the original too sweet.
