The Scent of Bitter Almonds

The good kind!
1 12 oz Rhum Agricole, Neisson Élevé Sous Bois
12 oz Lemon juice (+ a scant more)
12 oz Orgeat
14 oz Amaretto, Luxardo
14 oz Cynar
2 ds Bitters, Boker's
Instructions
Shake, strain into coupe. Garnish with a long lemon peel curled into the glass
Notes
The was designed to build almond aromas in straightforward (Amaretto, Orgeat) and oblique (the rum, the Cynar) ways. This works equally well with Rogue's Hazelnut rum.
