Had this at at Backbar and it was great. If I made it again I'd reduce the lime to 1/2 oz max. Unless you want it bracingly tart.

I made this with Black Bottle for the smoky Scotch, which may have been a mistake. The resulting cocktail was good, but Chartreuse/lime-forward with bitterness and peat on the back end, like a slightly smoky Bad Word. Which is far from a bad thing! But my guess is that the mightier Lagavulin gives it an entirely different balance. The rhum's coconut and sugarcane notes came out in subsequent sips, but otherwise it was remarkably subdued for 100 proof (I used La Favorite).

ETA: lovely watermelon color though.
