major blunt

1 1/2 oz Blended Scotch (Cutty Sark Prohibition)
1 oz Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi)
1/2 oz Funky Jamaican Rum (Smith & Cross)
2 dash Orange Bitters (Angostura Orange)

Build in a rocks glass, add ice, stir, and garnish with an orange twist (omit).
Two Wednesdays ago, I spotted on Kindred Cocktails a recipe that David Wondrich created called the Major Blunt. Actor Patrick Stewart posted on his Twitter account in 2015 the recipe that Wondrich crafted in honor of his sitcom Blunt Talk. As a funky Jamaican rum-tinged Rob Roy, it seemed like a perfect nightcap to round out my evening spent working at the bar. In the glass, Major Blunt cast of rum funk, orange, and caramel aromas to the nose. Next, grape and caramel on the sip cascaded into smoky Scotch, burnt caramel, and rum funk on the swallow.
