Looks awesome, though Old

Looks awesome, though Old Monk is increasingly hard to find around Boston (at least it is at my usual packies). I wonder how mezcal would do in this, I bet mezcal as base spirit would be tasty with some tweaks.

Old Monk is almost always at

Old Monk is almost always at Martignetti's and Liquor World in Porter.
