  • Used Flor de Cana. Any non-caramely rum would work. — ★★★
  • Made with diluted Hamilton 151 Demerara. Decent balance of pretty interesting flavors, but didn't love it. I get a fair amount of flat rum-and-Coke from it. — ★★★
  • Made with ED 15. Rich with some nice layers from the VF, F. Branca, and the Averna. — ★★★★
  • Quite good, adding a little more fernet worked with my sweeter rum (Zaya) — ★★★★
  • Did it verbatim. Very nice. Complex, not too sweet, nice finish! Yum! — ★★★★★
  • This time used El Dorado 12, Cynar instead of Fernet. A bit sweet, might actually need the fernet. And maybe ED 8 instead of 12? — ★★★★
  • Used Cynar instead of Fernet Branca, and added an extra dash of bitters. First time used 12 yo rum, next time Rhum agricole. Preferred the 12 yo rum, — ★★★

AmyJ commented on 8/28/2014:

This inspired a tasty, well spiced digestive: 1/2 oz each of falernum (homemade) and Averna, angostura and 1/4 oz fernet. Most tasty at room temp, no ice.

Very mellow - nice blend of Fernet and rum - not too sweet or menthol. I used Appleton 12yr rare blend rum, but might try with a few others. Hard to get true demerara rum in my neck of the woods...
