  • A great drink and an easy 4.5. A better Final Ward. I'd like to try with Rye. — ★★★★
  • Works with Rye, also. Could go a bit heavier on the lime (5/8 oz.). — ★★★
  • A bit on the cloying side. I might dial back the Maraschino or increase the lime. I definitely like the richness that the Bonal and Old Grand Dad bring to the table — ★★★
  • Resembles a Final Ward. (Shares with it the unappealing color that results from combining Chartreuse and brown spirits.) Lime and chartreuse flavors dominate; some rebalancing experiments are worth trying. — ★★★★
