Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
Peat smoke brightened by orange oils on the nose. Malt, grape, and a fruitiness from the apricot brandy on the sip. Smoky whisky and bitter apricot on the swallow with an orange-apricot and quinine finish.
Inspired by a drink that called for Bank Note Scotch, I kept with my quinquina kick and added Bonal to the great combination of apricot + Cynar. Bank Note made me think of the 1970s era checkout card at the back of the retired library book on Scotch that I bought used.
