Didn't have Irish whisky or

Didn't have Irish whisky or Gran Classico in my bar, so I used a simple Scotch whisky (Macallan 10) and doubled the Averna.  Didn't care much for it.  Did a second version that used bourbon in place of the Irish whisky and stayed with the doubled Averna in place of the Gran Classico.  Much nicer cocktail on my palate.
