From other users
  • Delicious. Made with Few rye, Havana Club Anejo 7 rum, Claude Chatelier XO Cognac, and Tippleman's burnt molasses sugar syrup. Great surprising smooth combo of alcohols. Bit sweet - I'd reduce Tippleman's a tipple. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Quite like this as an Old Fashioned riff. I approximated the syrup with a scant 1/2 oz. of turbinado syrup and a small dash of pimento dram. Like the other commenters said, this is on the sweet side. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Must try
  • old fashioned syrup, ake Make syrup! Make cocktail!
  • Very tasty. Used KC 110 proof, Appleton's 12 yr, and Copper & Kings Phoenix barrel with maple syrup and a dash of Allspice Dram and chocolate bitters — ☆☆☆☆

Curated to fix typo in

Curated to fix typo in cocktail name, clarify the syrup, and format the syrup to fit Kindred Cocktails. Thanks for posting.

fantastic twist on a classic!

fantastic twist on a classic! subbed out the Appletons for Zaya 12 year, and used a Tesseron XO because that's all I had. Going to my favorite store to get some Remy becuase this one is going into rotation.

This is brilliant - so much

This is brilliant - so much flavour (Hennessey, Appleton 12, Rittenhouse).  Maybe a little sweet with the half of simple, but now I'm going to make the Old Fashioned syrup and try the drink in its full glory.

Made this with Smith & Cross,

Made this with Smith & Cross, WT 101 Rye, and Salignac Cognac. Used 1/4 oz regular double simple syrup. Still a mighty fine drink.
