Review:

Grassy spirituous agricole rhum is mellowed by fruity pineapple, sweet herbal liqueur and vinous herbal vermouth.

History:

Adapted from a drink discovered in March 2018 at Merchant House of Bow Lane, London, England. (The original recipe: 30ml Agricole rhum, 60ml Lillet Blanc, 15ml Yellow Chartreuse and 10ml pineapple syrup, served in a small stemmed wine glass with a single pebble-shaped slither of ice.)

The drink is named after Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) and the following accompanies the drink on the Merchant House's menu, "After rising to the rank of General at the young age of 24, Napoleon later arranged a coup, placing himself as the first Emperor of France. His skill in command led to numerous years of French dominance in Europe and further afield, and his reforms continue to influence our society today."
