More sour/less sweet than I expected. Planning to try with less lemon juice, maybe some simple syrup.

Dan's picture

Very nice cocktail, and surprisingly accessible for the non-Scotch lover. I also made a version with Anejo Tequila and Mezcal -- very nice.

Dan, I've made one with Mezcal, I was thinking of putting it up but would take it down if it's too similar, is yours posted? If so, under what name, and if not, would you mind putting the build?

Very good. Used honey and King's Ginger with Balvenie. Even Robin liked it. (4 stars)
