st. columbus rill

2 oz Bushmills Irish Whiskey (Teeling's Small Batch)
3/4 oz Dolin Blanc Vermouth
1/4 oz Green Chartreuse
1/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino

Stir with ice and strain into a coupe glass.
A few Fridays ago, I decided to open up the Death & Co. Cocktail Book to find my evening's nightcap. Phil Ward's St. Columbus Rill from 2008 called out to me and reminded me of the Flushing-Main St. that I had tried earlier in the week. Once mixed, the St. Columbus Rill presented a malt, Chartreuse herbal, and hints of nutty cherry on the nose. Next, a light malt and grape sip gave way to smooth whiskey and a Last Wordy combination of Green Chartreuse and Maraschino.
