1 oz Kilkerran 12 Year Single Malt Scotch (Royal Brackla 12 Year)
3/4 oz Ron del Barrilito 3 Star Rum (Bacardi 4 Year)
1/4 oz Smith & Cross Rum
1 tsp Pineapple Syrup
1/2 tsp Crème de Cacao (Tempus Fugit)
2 dash Bittermens Mole Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Sundays ago, I returned to Death & Co.'s Welcome Home and came upon the Tripwire. This Scotch and rum Old Fashioned of sorts was crafted by Shannon Tebay in 2018 with the thought "What would a stirred Piña Colada taste like? This." Since I lack Ron del Barrilito, I had to use another Puerto Rican rum but one that lacked fruit maceration and sherry barrel finish steps. Once prepared, the Tripwire approached the nose with lemon, pineapple, and Scotch aromas. Next, a roast note on the sip launched into Scotch, funky rum, pineapple, and chocolate flavors on the swallow.
