A disappointment. After reading many of the reviews, I was excited to try this recipe. I made it according to the recipe, and a day in advance so it would have time to sit. I was a bit concerned about the strong whiskey aroma when I pulled it from the oven, but by the next day the aroma was gone. That was deceptive though. Although the aroma was gone, the cake still had a very strong whiskey flavor. Of the four people who tried the cake, only one liked it. The cake was moist ... loved that about it. Our saving grace was a batch of sugared raspberries I had in the refrigerator - a big spoonful over the top masked the whiskey flavor and made the cake taste pretty good.
