Short stir, strain, express peel and discard.
So I'm using Ardbeg's Uigeadail here, which is 108 proof and has some sherry component. I think it's important that there's peat and some sweetness and higher proof - it's got to give punch to the drink. Good substitutes might be Lagavulin Distiller's Edition, or a barspoon of PX sherry in a fat ounce of Laphroaig Cask Strength.
So it's definitely fall where I live, and the animals know it. Trees are starting to turn, deer are wandering on the hillside, and a boy's thoughts turn to cooler weather drinks. I imagine this to be something you might drink out of a flask while out hunting. It certainly brings to mind damp cold mornings and forced stillness and quiet while the animal world wakes up.
