This version of the classic Manhattan incorporates a few additional ingredients that add some sweetness to the classic Manhattan. I think that these additions make this drink more palatable than the traditional Manhattan and accentuate the positive qualities of the Whiskey.

The Manhattan has always been a challenging drink for me to consume, because of the often overpowering taste of whiskey. One night I began experimenting with the drink by incorporating other ingredients that would sweeten it slightly and bring out the best qualities of the whiskey. The drink that I came up with is the Matthatan - my own little eponym.
Some would call the Manhattan the most classic cocktail, or the King of Cocktails.

This version of the classic drink has all the taste and sweetness of the original. At the same time it is clear that whisky is the main ingredient whilst subduing the bite of the whisky at the same time.
