  • Chartreuse is too dominant. I halved it and still too much. Maybe a bolder rye and upping the amaro? — ★★★

Colin says this cocktail isn't his. He says Max Shapiro created it.

Interesting, but on my taste-buds the Chartreuse overwhelmed the Nonino. 
Tried substituting Benedictine which played more happily.
Missing a little of the zip supplied by the Chartreuse.
