1 oz St. Lucian Rum, Chairman's Reserve
1⁄4 oz Aromatized wine, Lillet Rouge
2 ds Acid phosphate
2 ds Bitters, Angostura (original recipe called for leather bitters)
1 rinse Islay Scotch (This is not part of the original recipe, but this seems lacking without it or something else.)

Stir and strain into chilled coupe.


I think you could sub another molasses based aged rum. I've used Diplomatico Anejo.

  • I'll also try this with Chairman's Reserve or maybe even a Jamaican Appleton Estate 12 year which I suspect could up my rating to 5. — ★★★★
