Randomly stumbled upon this

Randomly stumbled upon this drink and gave it another whirl and I still like it. I think Rittenhouse is the way to go (not sure why I went with Overholt initially) and I used PX sherry instead of madeira since my bottle of Blandy's is a bit past it's prime. Also skipped the rock and served it down. Not bad.
