  • Not bad but ventured a bit into Luden's-cough-drop territory. — ☆☆☆
  • I can't get enough of the Last Word riffs... I had to sub Don Q 151 for the white rum - not a fan of Wray & Nephew - too sweet. — ☆☆☆☆

Didn't have the Clear Creek

Didn't have the Clear Creek kirsch on hand but a dusty bottle of Maraska kirsch I dug up from the back bottom shelf.  I quite liked this, didn't remind me of cherry cough drops at all.  Well balanced (perhaps a touch--and I do mean just a touch--sweet, might do an expressed lime swath next time) with a nice amount of overlapping funky fruit flavors.  Can definitely see the Daq # 4 connection.  Though with the Maraska, this does have the dubious distinction of probably being the only cocktail I can remember where every spirit had a plastic safe pour spout. ;-)
