  • Sweet, smooth with a bit of funk. Blends well.
  • 1. Might try with less Green Chartreuse next time
  • bittersweet amaro-based cocktail that really blends all of its ingredients well
  • good very unique
  • Montenegro plus.
  • Love it
  • Great unusual flavor, looks like a dark boozy cocktail but tastes sweeter. Orange and apple brandy at first with a refreshing spices and chartreuse finish. — ★★★★

Great! Used Vecchio Amaro del Capo instead of Amaro Montenegro. 

Agree. Unique. Floral, but the Chartreuse gives the perfect Campari bite.

nice and smooth with a full body if just a bit sweet. I swapped Calvados/Montenegro proportions and liked it more.
