White Oak Propeller

A riff on the Paper Airplane, with at least 3 plays on words/ingredients in the name. Oak was used for airplane parts up until the 1940's.
34 oz Old Tom Gin (A barrel aged version)
34 oz Bianco Vermouth
34 oz Amaro Nonino
34 oz Aperol
Shake, strain into a chilled coupe. No garnish.
You must used a barrel aged gin (I used Breuckelen) to get that oak in there. A light style Old Tom like Hayman's will not work. Dolin Blanc, though wonderful, is not the best fit here, use a more savory style like Contratto.

Curated this slightly - moved

Curated this slightly - moved the long notes from the body of the drink to the notes section, so it doesn't blow out line breaks. Changed 3 2/5 oz vermouth to 3/4 - I'm guessing this is what you want to meet the Paper Airplane? Thanks,  Zachary
