Really nice, well-balanced cocktail. Only had Cazadores reposado around, but it played nicely.

Stew,

Love the thought of anejo tequila + Cynar playing together. What sweet vermouth do you recommend? Dolin might be nice...

My sweet vermouth of choice is Cocchi. Dolin could be nice, too! Carpano Antica might add a bit too much bitterness to an already bitter drink.
