Well, the original recipe

Well, the original recipe calls for Cocchi Americano instead of Lillet Blanc. I think the swap I'd prefer to make would be to a sweeter malt as this mostly has me thinking "grilled lemons."

Thanks for pointing this out.

Thanks for pointing this out. I curated the cocktail to improve the source reference and attribution, and better reflect the original ingredients. I adjusted the lemonn from 1/2 to 3/4 oz, since the recipe calls for a 1/2 lemon. I adjusted the Scotch from Highland Park 12 to the specified Oban 14. Sounds quite good.
