2 oz Scotch (Cutty Sark Prohibition)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Walnut Liqueur (Russo Nocino)
1/2 oz Honey Syrup

Shake with ice and strain into cocktail glass or serve on the rocks.
Two Mondays ago, I landed upon the Connery created by Rafa Garcia Febles in Manhattan circa 2014 as his tribute to the actor who portrayed James Bond and other roles. The idea of a Scotch Sour softened by honey and accented by walnut liqueur sounded delightful. Once prepared, the Connery welcomed the nose with a peat smoke and walnut aroma. Next, the combination of lemon, malt, and honey on the sip was displaced by Scotch, honey, and walnut on the swallow with a smoky finish.
