After the Sangre du Nord, I decided upon finding a nightcap in Gary Regan's 101 Best New Cocktails 2012. When I spotted the Devil's Soul by Ted Kilgore, I was intrigued for we have enjoyed all of his recipe since I made his Revival three years ago. Moreover, the split rye and mezcal spirit is a combination that worked well in Stephen Cole's Racketeer and Thomas Waugh's Red Ant.
