Gucci Sweater Now

1 14 oz Cognac
34 oz Bénédictine
12 oz Valdespino Jerez Quina
14 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.

Thanks Rafa - I have a

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
