Review:

Well-balanced bitter-sweetness dominated by vermouth (hence the name) with faint maraschino but perhaps the most important ingredient is the most hidden, the dashes of bitters. Hence, dash well and judiciously.

History:

This cocktail first appears in Harry Johnson's 1888 New & Improved Bartender's Manual. It also features in Harry Craddock's 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book but with a much-simplified recipe:
"1 Glass Italian or French Vermouth
4 Dashes Orange or 1 Dash Angostura Bitters.
Stir well and strain into cocktail glass."
