I never thought Ramazzotti would be able to stand up to an Islay single malt. Used Ardbeg, and it was delicious, would definitely make this again.

'They've got more *** ***** **** *** **** than the likes o' me!' Love the name. ^_^

I used Johnny Walker Red (I had a big bottle!) and Bittercube Bolivar Bitters. This is definitely a drink that lives up to its name. After a few, I could only see out of one eye!

I too used johnnie red and through lack of the fees barrel aged I used 3dsh of Fees Old Fashioned and one of Bittermans Xocolatl Mole. It was all too much for the scotch, rolled right over it. I need to get some Laphroaig and do this for real.

In addition to a straight-up peaty Islay (like Lagavulin, Laphroiag, or Ardbeg), I have found that Talisker 10 year works very well in this cocktail. Other, less powerful, whiskys would just be overpowered (in part because 4 dashes of Fee Whiskey Barrel bitters is very intense).
