2 oz Rye, High West Double Rye
3⁄4 oz Bigallet China-China
1 rinse Islay Scotch, Lagavulin 16

Spritz or rinse a rocks glass with the Scotch and then add a large block of ice. Stir the remaining ingredients in a mixing glass and strain into the prepared glass, then add one final spritz of Scotch over the finished cocktail.


Fearing it would be too sweet, I only used about 1/2 tsp of Demerara syrup, which was plenty for my palate. Might omit the syrup altogether next time, as I prefer most cocktails on the drier side.
