Review:

Punchy pot-still rum with the equally powerful notes of Green Chartreuse supported by maraschino liqueur with lime zestiness. Powerful in every respect. (Perhaps split serve between two in Nick & Nora glasses.)

History:

A riff on a Last Word created in 2009 by Chuck Taggart, Los Angeles and named by Dave Stolte.
