  • Made with Monkey Shoulder, Plymouth sloe gin. Balanced, distinct if not overwhelming apricot flavor. Would try again with different scotch.
  • Ratings weren’t great, but I’m curious,
  • Fruity and accessible, but also has some nice complexity. — ★★★★

Common sense and the source both have this drink shaken rather than stirred.

Interesting combination and definitely has some interesting layers. I did this with naked grouse and suspect it would be better served by a less sherry bomb scotch. Still definitely worth making again.
