terms of treaty

1 oz Buffalo Trace Bourbon (Old Grand-Dad Bonded)
1 oz Pierre Ferrand 1840 Cognac (Du Peyrat Selection)
1/2 oz Zurbaran Cream Sherry (Lustau East India Solera)
1/2 oz Giffard Crème de Banane (Tempus Fugit)
1 tsp Demerara Syrup
1 dash Bitter Truth Jerry Thomas Decanter Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a Nick & Nora glass.
Two Wednesdays ago after my bar shift, I reached for Death & Co.'s Welcome Home book and landed upon Eryn Reece's 2014 Terms of Treaty. The combination of Cognac, sherry, and banana liqueur reminded me of the Baldwin Bar's French Connection and also The Zemurray with Bourbon instead of brandy. Once prepared, the Terms of Treaty welcomed the senses with a caramel and raisiny grape aroma. Next, caramel and raisin notes continued on into the sip, and the swallow proffered up Bourbon, chocolate, and banana flavors with a spiced finish.
