Looks like basically a Last Word with bourbon and lemon subbed in.

I might be off on the Luxardo ratio, but I do know this... It was hella' good. My first thought at the nose was that it was a Last Word. Then my buddy (the bartender), said nope, bourbon.

Agreed… but sounds interesting, I've never tried it that way.

Wow, after reading some posts in this thread, thought I would try the Wry Grin because I have not been hitting my rye as of late. It is really, really a great drink.

Finally grabbed a bottle of Gran Classico and made a Negroni with Martin Miller's Westbourne and Carpano Antica. Really nice, think GC really is better than Campari.

Tried this tonight after the recommendations.

Really works well, probably the first Fernet heavy cocktail that I've really liked. The spice from the rye and mint complements the Fernet really well, and washes over some of the rougher notes in the amaro but leaves the complexity.

Anyone tried the Glorious Gin from Breukelen Distellery (can't believe I just typed that...)?

Local store was out of my normal choices (guess for the holiday?) so picked up a bottle. It's... Interesting. Very floral, very citrusy. Undecided as to how I feel.

Thoughts on Martini Gran Lusso? Picked up a bottle at the Duty Free shop today. Will have a taste tomorrow.

It sounds good...

Finally, to fortify and flavor the elixir, they add an oak-aged Moscato must extract, as well as a secret botanical concoction based on a recipe from 1904, which has rested in glass demijohns for 8 years (!) to mellow and settle.

Satan's Whiskers (curled, out of Grand Marnier except for an unopened bottle of 150 year old), following a bottle of '06 Chave St Joseph Offerus with dinner.

It's really good! Think Martini rosso with more body and more nuanced and complex flavors. Quite bitter too. Good amount of citrus notes. The Moscato (d'Asti?) adds a nice touch and is noticeable. Will have to try it in a Negroni.
