The Eulogy's nose was filled with lime and Batavia Arrack aromas. The drink was a bit sweet for my tastes especially compared to the Last Word, although after successive sips, the sweetness seemed to subside to a more comfortable level. The first part of the sip was the sweetness combined with the lime juice's fruitiness. The Chartreuse and falernum's spice followed this first flavor wave, and the Batavia Arrack's rawness completed the profile on the swallow. The Batavia Arrack did a great job filling in for the intensity lost via eliminating the green Chartreuse, and the yellow Chartreuse and falernum did a decent job substituting for Maraschino liqueur's role in the Last Word.
