darkwing duck

1 oz Royal Thistle Scotch
1/2 oz Laird's Bonded Apple Brandy
1 oz Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth
1/2 oz Russo Nocino
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a single old fashioned glass. Garnish with a cherry.
Tuesday two weeks ago, Andrea and I ventured over to Audubon for dinner. For a drink, I asked bartender Taylor Knight for the Darkwing Duck from the cartoon-themed section of the menu, and he mentioned that it was bar manager Tyler Wang's menu item. Once prepared, it gave forth nutty and smoke aromas with a hint of grape. The grape continued on into the sip where it mingled with apple flavors, and the swallow presented the Scotch with nutty notes smoothed over by the Carpano Antica.
