The Sazerac went through many variations as Antoine Amedie Peychaud experimented with remedies that used his bitters. In 1838 it used French Brandy and by 1873 it was using American Rye. It moved from Absinthe to Herbsainte and other slight variations. All great cocktails change with time.
Notes:
Spicy rye with a backend hint of anise/fennel and a slight sweetness.

Tropical flavors of almond, brown sugar, cherry, pineapple and an array of sweetness.

A cocktail named for a character in the movie Chocolat, but no real cocktail history.

A light chocolate hint against a nice whiskey flavor that leads to a spicy bite in the finish
The Trinidad sour is a great use of angostura bitters in high degree, this drink's core "spirit" is bitters and that is pretty unusual.
