I've finally got a taste for it and it works really well with just pineapple juice.

A tasty use for W&N from Adam Bryan at Bar Congress in Austin, Texas...

Montegomatica

1 1/2 oz Wray & Nephew overproof
1 oz Fernet Branca
1 oz falernum
1 oz lime juice
1/2 oz Cruzan Black Strap

Shake everything except Cruzan with crushed ice, pour into a glass (Adam uses a Hurricane glass), float Cruzan. Mint garnish.

Still not sure about it the best use is for making your own Falurnum.

I personally like W&N so I don't think in terms of finding ways to bury it. I created this one for this month's mixology monday to intentionally feature it...



Patong Swizzle
1 1/2 oz Wray & Nephew overproof rum
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
3/4 oz Thai syrup*
1/2 oz unsweetened pineapple juice

Swizzle with crushed ice, top with more crushed ice.

*Thai syrup
1 1/4 cups coconut water
2 stalks lemon grass, trimmed, sliced and crushed
4 kaffir lime leaves
1/2" piece fresh ginger, chopped
1 slice from a hot green chile
4 fresh mint leaves
4 fresh basil leaves
6 fresh cilantro leaves

Heat coconut water, lemongrass, lime leaves, ginger and chile at a slow simmer for ~5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and infuse for ~20 minutes. Blanch herbs in boiling water for ~10 seconds, shock in ice water and add to coconut water. Blitz everything with a stick blender and strain (I strained through a medium strainer, squeezed the liquid from the pulp through then strained it through a fine strainer).

Exactly. You end up using the majority of a bottle, but Pimento Liqueur is used in quite a few cocktails and (i'm assuming) will last a long time, since it has a very powerful taste and a little goes a long way!
Wray and Nephew O.P. is also used when making "Falernum #9" which is an extremely easy recipe that really makes fantastic drinks. I just made a new (1/2) batch yesterday.
