Just an FYI here, Diabolique

Just an FYI here, Diabolique is an infused bourbon, so it's not replaceable. That said, if the drink works with regular bourbon, it works - though I would call this an altered recipe.

Interesting. - I had no idea.

Interesting. - I had no idea. What is it infused with? I've never seen it in the stores here in TN.

I had a taste probably six years ago and it didn't do much for me, though I don't recall the flavor. It's from MA, and I don't know how widely available it is.

Ok, thanks. I changed this

Ok, thanks. I changed this entry to "altered", per your suggestion. I thought it was a pretty decent drink even with non-infused bourbon.
