Manhattan (Silver Whiskey)

2 oz Oat Whiskey, High West Silver Whiskey
14 oz Dry vermouth, Dolin
14 oz Bénédictine (optional)
2 ds Bitters, Bitter Truth Repeal Day
Stir with ice, strain, and serve in a martini glass.
Been playing around with the High West silver since it came out. Brand matters here because it's an oat whiskey, a rarity, and has a custard & tropical fruit aroma.
Riffed off a friend's recipe calling for 1.5 oz white corn whisky, .5 oz dry vermouth, .5 oz Benedictine, and orange bitters.

Since the Repeal Day bitters

Since the Repeal Day bitters are limited production and sold-ago sold out, perhaps we could update this to use a bitters that is available, at least as a sub? Also I created a Oat Whiskey ingredient, so I used that for the High West.

I have the repeal bitters,

I have the repeal bitters, they are very Christmas-y. I'd say Angostura is definitely an acceptable substitute, though some of the spice will be lost - maybe muddle a clove first? I don't have the oat whiskey so I can't say, but I'm not sure what makes this a Manhattan since it doesn't have sweet vermouth. That said, the repeal bitters are SPECTACULAR in a Manhattan.
