The Pernod rinse might overpower the nose a bit on this one, but over nice balance and good flavor.

From other users

Well balanced and yummy. (5 stars)
Nice interplay of sweet from the bourbon and elderflower with the sour citrus. Interesting flavors. (3 stars)
Delicious, easy-drinking, creation. Used half rye / half bourbon to simulate the Bulleit. (5 stars)
