Added better attribution, instructions, and clarified brand preference. Seems like a bold and interesting drink. It's on my suggested list now.


Confirmed: bold and interesting. Very tasty, very successful. 4.5-5/5.


Made with Laphroaig 10 Cask Strength Edition a10 and a tiny bit heavy on it. It's robust but still light on its feet, an odd delivery system for such a tasty scotch but a good one. 


This is the excact same drink as Phil Wards "Pete's Word" from 2008. It's featured in the Death&Co book.
