outlaw country

1 oz Old Grand-Dad Bonded Bourbon (Old Forester 100°)
1/2 oz Plantation Pineapple Rum
1/4 oz Smith & Cross Rum
1/4 oz Averna
1 tsp Vanilla Syrup
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into an old fashioned glass with a large cube; the photo showed an orange twist, so I added one.
Two Thursdays ago, I spotted a reference on Barnotes about an interesting Old Fashioned variation that had been posted on the Death & Co. Instagram. The drink was the Outlaw Country that they created at their Denver outpost, and Averna as half of the sweetener reminded me of the Autumn Sweater but with a more tropical bend here. Once prepared, the Outlaw Country showcased an orange, caramel, and pineapple aroma. Next, the caramel and pineapple continued on into the sip, and that was chased by Bourbon, funky rum, tropical fruit, and vanilla flavors on the swallow with a clove and pineapple finish.
