I just confirmed with Erik that this one should be Ashtray Heart and not Ash Tray Heart.

@drunklab - Maybe sub Laphroaig or similar for mezcal?

A great idea, but my bottle of Lagavulin's at a friend's place. I'll give that a try next time if I'm still Mezcal-less.

This is wrong one at least two levels. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Lagavulin should be either in your cabinet or in your glass.

How right you are. To atone, I will down at least two Glencairn glasses when I get it back.

Made this this evening without the rinse (I'm lacking Mezcal at the moment, sadly). Wow. I think I may have a new favorite way to drink Smith and Cross.

Robin like it only without the Mezcal (4 stars)
