frank lloyd wright

2 oz Buffalo Trace Bourbon (Old Forester 100°)
1/2 oz Rothman & Winter Pear Liqueur
1/8 oz Nocino (Russo)
1/8 oz Laphroaig Scotch
2 dash Fee's Old Fashioned Bitters (Fee's Whiskey Barrel-Aged)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon twist.

Two Sundays ago, I spotted an Old Fashioned riff on Barnotes for the Frank Lloyd Wright from Bourbon & Branch in San Francisco. Through the Alcademics blog, I was able to attribute the recipe to bartender Ian Scalzo who served during Malt Advocate's Whisky Week events in 2009. The use of pear liqueur as the sweetener reminded me of Erick Castro's Statesman that he created at Bourbon & Branch in 2008.
The Frank Lloyd Wright designed up a lemon, peat smoke, and pear nose. Next, a malt and orchard fruit sip built up a Bourbon, pear, and smoky Scotch swallow with a walnut and cinnamon finish.
