  • Used Tanqueray Malacca gin for the initial try of this cocktail. Somewhat sweet, but not the typical pronounced juniper found in many gins. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Truly fantastic cocktail. The quality of the Amontillado is not lost. You will taste the difference. I used El Maestro Sierra Amontillado 12 años but also Bodegas Rey Fernando de Castilla. Still great :-) — ☆☆☆☆☆

<br />I'm surprised that this drink was posted two years ago and, until now, no one has commented on it or rated it. This is a lovely, tasty drink, whose ingredients blend together well despite being so disparate. There is not, for example, the marked bitterness associated with Campari or gin's Juniiper. But the sweet vermouth makes its presence known despite its relatively small quantity. For this drink I used all top-shelf brands: Tanqueray Malacca gin, Contratto sweet vermouth, Character (a medium dry Amontillado sherry by Sandeman), and, of course, Campari. For those who are not fond of a dry sherry taste, I dscovered by accident that using only 1 1/4 oz of Amontillado results in a somewhat sweeter, but still delicious cocktail. Imbibe!
