Good recipe; I'll try it again. I think I can make it come out better, as I used a dusty dry Italian red; something a little more fruity would have been better; likewise I didn't have any Irish Whiskey on hand, and used Canadian instead, doing it with Scotch or Irish would certainly improve my results. Mine cooked a little faster so had to pull it a little early. Likewise, when I next do this, I'm going to be a bit more fussy on the roast...this recipe has all sorts of potential to come up to a seriously great result, and my four stars reflects my mistakes, as opposed the author's...
