powerful baritone

1 1/2 oz Cutty Sark Prohibition Scotch
1/2 oz Amaro Montenegro
1/4 oz Strega
1/4 oz Becherovka
2 dash 18.21 Bitters Leon Ginger Tincture (Berg & Hauck Lemon Bitters)

Build in a double old fashioned glass, add a large ice cube, and stir to mix and chill. Garnish with a spritz of Laphroaig and a lemon twist.
Two Saturdays ago, I was curious about a recipe that I spotted in a Punch Drinks article on Penicillin riffs. The one that called out to me was the Powerful Baritone by Sother Teague of Amor y Amargo, and he crafted this variation without citrus juice which I had only tasted once before in the Penicillin Flip. The Powerful Baritone once assembled crooned out a lemon oil and peat smoke bouquet. Next, malt with an almost honey-like note on the sip transferred into peaty Scotch, orange, and star anise flavors on the swallow with a lemon and spice finish.
