    That's helpful, Dave. Passed on it today because it's $27 in PA. I've seen it in NJ for closer to $22, so I'll hold out a little while longer.

    I did manage to buy a fresh bottle of Antica. Wish PA carried Dolin for some variety.

    OK, bought some Luxardo today... and made this so-called "Improved Whiskey Cocktail"... and I must say, real nice.

    Also, grabbed some Dolin varieties and made an adapted boulevardier (EC12, Dolin sweet, Campari, luxardo).

    Thanks for the inspiration, Dave!

    Sort of like a cross between an old fashioned and a Sazerac, isn't it? Glad I could inspire you to pick up the Luxardo.

    Yeah, that's a good way of putting it. The absinthe rinse (I used herbsaint) added a nice aromatic quality without strongly influencing the flavor. Next time (read, any moment) I'll try with some orange bitters. Picked up some Bitter Truth brand bitters that I'm eager to put to use.

    trying my mioxology skills with so so results. have had similar cocktails, but with something sweet, like thyme simple syrup and walnut bitters.
    any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Manhattan variation, 2:1 + 2 dashes:

    EC12
    Dolin Blanc (not dry)
    Bitter Truth Orange Bitters

    Very elegant, very drinkable.

    The only cocktail I drink is a summer one, very refreshing.

    Tall glass, rocks, 2-3 oz. anejo tequila, splash of lemon juice, 2-3 dashes Angostura bitters, fill glass with Sierra Mist.
