Background & History

"A guest once asked me to make a cocktail that tasted like 'the great American novel.' So I combined apple brandy from our country's oldest distillery with a classic bourbon." - Jason Littrell, Death & Co

Notes & Review

Very boozy with two and a half ounces of brandy + bourbon + Scotch but the demerara syrup and bitters do a lot to bring this all together nicely. It's a good alternative to a Manhattan or Old-Fashioned and a great intro to Laphroaig, which can be a bully and is pretty intense, but plays a very successful background role here.
