From other users
  • Complex, with funky Ransom flavors coming through strongly. Would be much milder with Hayman's or a London Dry. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Aka the Phillip Martin — ☆☆☆
  • Made with Tanqueray Old Tom. Insistent alcohol presence (merits a long stir), but interesting flavors underlying it. Lovely. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Cherry comes through, with a sweetness that is offset by the Campari. Very good with Malacca gin. — ☆☆☆

Nice. I like that you can

Nice. I like that you can taste each component, although perhaps this makes for the slight disharmony I'm experiencing. 4.27.
