Looks awesome, though Old Monk is increasingly hard to find around Boston (at least it is at my usual packies). I wonder how mezcal would do in this, I bet mezcal as base spirit would be tasty with some tweaks.

Old Monk is almost always at Martignetti's and Liquor World in Porter.

I think mezcal would work, but it doesn't have the same vanilla notes that Old Monk has, so it would probably need another ingredient to mellow out the bite.
