daq in black

1 oz Blackwell Jamaican Rum
1/2 oz Cognac
1/2 oz Meletti Amaro
1/2 oz Demerara Syrup
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1 dash Fee's Black Walnut Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon peel lightning bolt.
For my second drink at Backbar, I opted for Luc Thiers' drink of the day, the Daq in Black. Since it was his first day back, he created the drink as a joke about his proclivity towards amaro-laden Daiquiris all with an AC/DC reference here. Once in the glass, the Daq in Black gave forth a lemon aroma from the twist and a caramel one from the dark rum and amaro. Next, the caramel notes continued into the sip where they contrasted the crisp lime, and the swallow offered dark rum, Cognac, vanilla, and walnut flavors.
