Two Mondays ago, I stopped in at J.M. Curley, and for a drink, I asked bartender Daren Palacios for the In the Bond. The lemon twist's aroma brightened that of the apple brandy. A sweet, vaguely fruit and spice sip was a foreshadowing of the swallow which contained most of the apple, ginger, and cinnamon flavors. Moreover, the apple notes lingered pleasantly on the swallow, and as the ice melted, the In the Bond gained allspice and clove elements.
