From other users
  • Lovely, autumnal. Vanilla, cinnamon. Warm flavors but not too heavy. Bitter is balanced well, and S&C present even at the small quantity. I mixed the rum in but wondered if it was intended as a float. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Good used Mt. Gay black barrel, added chicory and pecan bitters to good effect (one ds) — ☆☆☆☆

Used Mt. Gay Black Barrel as

Used Mt. Gay Black Barrel as I don't have Smith & Cross. I added one ds of El Guapo Chicory Pecan bitters to good effect. Perhaps would not be useful/good addition with Smith & Cross, but with Mt. Gay it added some interesting deeper notes.
