ransom note

1 oz Rittenhouse Rye
1 oz Lustau Brandy de Jerez (Du Peyrat Selection)
3/4 oz Del Professore Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi)
1/4 oz Amaro Ramazzotti
1 tsp Giffard White Crème de Cacao (Bols)
1 dash Orange Bitters (Angostura Orange)
1 dash Bitter Truth Aromatic Bitters (Jerry Thomas Decanter)

Stir with ice, strain into a Nick & Nora glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Thursdays ago, I was in the mood for a nightcap after a busy shift at the bar. From Death & Co.'s Welcome Home book, I selected Jeremy Oertel's 2015 Ransom Note to do the deed. In the glass, it shared a lemon, brandy, and caramel bouquet to the senses. Next, grape and caramel notes swirled on the sip, and the swallow came through with rye, Cognac, cola, chocolate, and spice flavors on the swallow.
