Background & History

A drink based on the Golden Boy (from Death & Co as well). "From the same starting point of raisins and whiskey, Devon took this cocktail to a smokier place by adding a touch of peaty Islay scotch to the core and balancing it out with raisin-infused honey syrup." - Cocktail Codex

Notes & Review

A nice old-fashioned riff, with smokey notes from the scotch and sweet syrupy honey on the finish. The raisin got lost, but it could be that the syrup itself was not made well enough (the true recipe calls for an immersion circulator, instead of just letting it seep overnight).
