Stir with ice. Strain into chilled coupe. Lemon zest.


I used a LBV port, but also works nicely with a tawny ten.

Did this with a Hakushu 12 and a 10 YO tawny. Incredibly well balanced with a layer of smoke on top. A surprising combination of flavors that works incredibly well. Precision is key here. I went a touch heavy on the maraschino and it really affected the balance.

probably actually a 3.5. Nice balance, good smoke and the raisin-ey note from the port is cut nicely by the scotch. Tried with highland park 12 and a splash of Wee Beastie.
