  • Excellent drink wouldn’t change a thing
  • Very nice. Very complex. Reduced Fernet to 1/4. Dribbles of Absinthe and Luxardo — ★★★★★
  • Strong, menthol, bourbon. If you contemplate the drink you can taste the cynar and maraschino, good drink for contemplating life. — ★★★★

I won't lie - it's bitter as hell. On purpose. :)
