I first made this one subbing Carpano Antica for the Punt e Mes. After trying it with Punt e Mes, I think I like it better with the Antica. Anyway...

Definitely before 2015. Sother made this for me at a pop-up event in Boston in 2014: https://cocktailvirgin.blogspot.com/2014/11/pumpernickel.html

Slightly different there (Bourbon, 3/4 oz Put e Mes, only 2 dash Angostura) when he made it for me. In Sother's book it is the one listed here with rye and 7 dashes etc. but with Amaro Abano instead of Ramazzotti. It's not uncommon for Amor y Amaro drinks to change the amaro identity over time.
