1 3/4 oz Blended Scotch (Cutty Sark Prohibition)
2 tsp Amontillado Sherry (Lustau)
1 1/2 tsp Pear Liqueur (Rothman & Winter)
1 tsp White Crème de Cacao (Bols)
1 tsp Cointreau
1/2 tsp Rich Simple Syrup
2 dash Angostura Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Mondays ago, I reached for Felipe Schrieberg's London Cocktails and landed upon the Mind Maps. The cocktail was created by Will Meredith at Lyaness based off the pear and chocolate notes he found in certain blended Scotches. Here, the Mind Maps proffered lemon, nutty grape, pear, and smoke aromas. Next, a semi-sweet grape sip led into Scotch, orange, and chocolate flavors on the swallow with a pear and clove finish.
