Too much pie-spice for me,

Too much pie-spice for me, although I used Fee WBA. I'd probably skip both bitters next time. Might also be good with rye.

The bitters are probably less

The bitters are probably less than necessary, but yeah, those WBAs (and regular Fee's Aromatic) are super heavy on the pie spice. I find the Scrappy's Aromatic have a unique peppery-cedar note... Also, yes, it is delicious with rye too! I started there, but dwindling supply led me to try it with gin, which I ended up liking a bit more. Plus, it conveniently filled the next slot in my "Sherlock" themed series of gin drinks... Thanks for trying it!
