From other users
  • Challenging combination of ingredients. Surprisingly, lime is quite dominant. Try with lemon or reduce lime to 1/2 oz. Good cocktail for a cocktail nerd. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Try again with specified ingredients — ☆☆☆
  • Made with Bowmore Legend and Rhum JM. Didn't love it. I feel the failure is mine, not the drink's. — ☆☆

I made this with Black Bottle

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.

Had this at at Backbar and it

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.
