From other users
  • Agree that Bonal is a bit muted. I like it so may tweak with another .25 next time. Used Muse Verte as rinse. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Good. Made with Rittenhouse. The lemon predominated. Perhaps worth trying some rebalancing to steer it further away from a whiskey sour. — ☆☆☆☆

Although I forgot the

Although I forgot the absinthe rinse, I really enjoyed this drink. I used Senior's white Curacao, which I like, and Old Overholt Rye, which I don't like as much as Bulleit's.  But I would say that this drink is my favorite of the 4 or 5 similar recipes I tried out over the weekend (Fernetaboutit, Corpse Defiler 666, Bitter Apricot, Death is not the End).
