  • I may be trying this with various Amaro replacing the Gammel Dansk. It just so happened I like that stuff and had a (old) bottle around. — ★★★★

A very nice, well-crafted combination. The dark cherry is there from the Heering, with the bitters providing a bourbon barrel essence to boost a basic mixing bourbon, while the amaro provides some bittersweet orange, clove, some root and spices. There is a lot of flavor to explore.
