  • Made with Black Bottle and Lustau Los Arcos. Vermouth, lemon oil, and Scotch on the nose, with heavy vanilla sweetness on the sip, and dry savory sherry and some malt/smoke on the swallow. Try again with a strong malt. — ☆☆☆

This is a nice way to dry out

This is a nice way to dry out Carpano Antica for sipping, but not a great showcase for the other ingredients, nor do the flavors coalesce into something new. Next time I'll try it with the sherry bumped up to 3/4 oz and a strong single malt rather than a blend.
