Made with Barbancourt 8 & Dolin. Tastes like dark Mexican chocolate. Despite the similarities in ingredients to a Negroni or Boulevardier the Mole bitters make this a very different tasting drink. — ★★★
I used Fee Whiskey Barrel Aged. Very similar to a Negroni, but with different ratio. Worth trying again with Mole bitters. — ★★★
I just made this with applejack instead of rum, and the previously attempted Fee's WBA bitters - quite nice, but I would drink dishwater after two dashes of WBA bitters. Maybe Aperol would have been better to let the apple come forth... there's always tomorrow night!
I made this with Flor de Caña 4 year Añejo Oreo, Carpano Antica, Campari, and Fee Brothers Aztec Chocolate bitters. The Campari dominates a little too much up front, but the other flavors come through at the end. I might sub in Amer Picon for the Campari.
The drink doesn't hold up as well with a thin Spanish style rum like Flor de Caña 4 Year. A pot still Barbados like R.L. Seale 10 Year or a dark rum like El Dorado 12 Year can balance the Campari better (but in different ways).
