the accent

1 oz Blended Scotch (Famous Grouse)
1 oz Bonal Gentiane-Quina
1/2 oz Amontillado Sherry (Lustau)
1/2 oz Bols Genever
1 dash Bittermens Mole Bitters (Angostura Cocoa)

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Sundays ago, I was searching Facebook for a post, and I came across a 2013 drink of the day at Backbar as a surprise side result. The bartenders at Backbar were inspired by Ran Duan's 2012 Spice Trade at the Baldwin Bar and riffed on it. Here, the Accent presented a grape, malt, and Scotch bouquet to the nose. Next, the grape on the sip flowed into malt, Scotch, nutty grape, and herbal flavors on the swallow with a chocolate finish.
