A Simple Quandary

1 oz Aquavit, North Shore
1 oz Gin, Uncle Val's Botanical
12 oz Sweet vermouth, Carpano Punt e Mes
12 oz Bénédictine
2 ds Orange bitters, Regans' orange bitters
Instructions
Stir, strain, chilled cocktail glass.
Notes
For a less spice driven flavor, use a more traditional Aquavit. Very complex with multiple layers or flavors and aromas.
History
This recipe lead me to being a finalist for the 2013 Uncle Val's Best Botanical Gin Contest held at the Night Club & Bar Show in Las Vegas.
