This works really well with a liqueur made from bay leaves or seeds in place of the Charteuse, if you can find (or make) one.
Green Chartreuse may be too strong - try yellow?

.25 oz lime made this more to my taste. I didn't have the suggested rum, used Rhum Barbancourt 8 yr.

I agree. I tried it as written. Blech. Too harsh. I added the 1/4 oz lime. Mmmmh marvelous. And it was so little citrus it just elevated it while still leaving it to feel like a spirits driven drink.

Lime would definitely help; it needs acid and tartness. All I can really taste is the Chartreuse; the Averna is basically buried. I give it 4/5 mainly because I love Chartreuse to death.
