Kissed by Fire

A drink dedicated to everyone's favorite wildling. Peppery, sweet, smokey and bitter.
2 oz Blended Scotch, Famous Grouse
1 oz Ginger liqueur, Domaine de Canton
2 ds Bitters, Bittermens Xocolatl Mole
1 ds Bitters, Regans' orange bitters
1 ds Pepper tincture, Scrappy's Firewater Tincture
14 oz Islay Scotch, Laphroaig Quarter Cask
1 twst Orange peel (Flamed, as garnish)
Instructions
In a mixing glass, combine blended scotch, ginger liqueur, and bitters, then fill with ice and stir just until chilled, about 20 seconds. Strain into a old-fashioned glass with one large cube of ice. Float the Islay scotch. Flame orange peel over drink and drop in. If desired, add a couple of drops of aromatic bitters in the middle of the glass. Valar morghulis!
Notes
An old fashioned variant. If you've got a spicy ginger syrup handy, sub out for the Canton.

Curated this slightly:

Curated this slightly: removed "fresh" from peels, we assume that. Changed the Orange Bitters to Gin Barrel Aged, instead of Gin Aged.

Thanks,
