For me, the beauty of the TV Navy Grog is the subtlety of the concentrate, I've experimented with the St. Elizabeth's dram, recipes here, my own, others, etc. and the dram is sooooo potent it really screams through a drink. The concentrate is there, but its not, its almost a phantom and it just marries so well with all of the other ingredients, its a perfect drink for me and the trick is being consistently sublime!
I still like the Navy Grog at TV Emeryville in comparison to those proffered at TV LA and the now defunct TV Palo Alto (sob).
The FI Navy Grog is delightful, but I still prefer the TV Navy Grog. As far as Smuggler's Cove's Navy Grog, I must confess, by the time I have one I can't remember what it tasted like (confession is good for the soul, right?)!
As the French say, "Vive la difference!" to each his own!
