1 1⁄4 oz Cognac
3⁄4 oz Bénédictine
1⁄2 oz Valdespino Jerez Quina
1⁄4 oz Dry vermouth, Dolin
Instructions

Express 2 lemon twists over ice in a mixing glass. Add everything, stir, strain into a coupe.

Notes

Whatever base spirit you use, it needs to be oaky and high proof - I'm using Daniel Bouju's "Royal" which is 120 proof and very oaky. Need to use some store pick Bourbon you don't love? This is a good place for it.

Comments

Love the name. Drink sounds delicious, too. 


Thanks Rafa - I have a nagging feeling it needs something high proof and really woody to cut through the sweetness. I'm going to try it with something from Daniel Bouju I think. Thanks,  Zachary
