It's pleasant. I subbed Clement VSOP for the Matusalem. I think it lacks a bit of oomph in the midpalate, and nothing really stands in the forefront. Perhaps a rinse of Fernet Branca to punch up the bitter?

Very challenging drink to be savored. The original would be too sweet for me. Added 1/4 oz lemon and omitted the syrup. (4 stars)
