sucker in a 3 piece

1 oz Rye Whiskey (Rittenhouse)
1 oz Cognac (Du Peyrat Selection)
1 oz Averna
1/8 oz Benedictine
2 dash Angostura Bitters
2 dash Orange Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a single old fashioned glass, and garnish with lemon and orange twists (express and discard).
Two Saturdays ago, I was exploring the Kindred Cocktails database when I spotted the Sucker in a 3 Piece; besides being a Van Halen song reference, it was a Black Vieux Carré akin to the day before's Black Boulevardier. This drink crafted at the Victory Sandwich Bar in Atlanta greeted the senses with lemon, orange, caramel, and grape aromas. Next, a semi-dry caramel sip gave way to rye, brandy, and caramel herbal flavors on the swallow with a clove and orange finish.
