vieux ananas

1 oz Rye Whiskey (Rittenhouse Bonded)
1 oz Plantation Pineapple Rum
1 oz Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi)
1/2 oz Benedictine
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist (lemon twist).
Two Fridays ago, I rediscovered the recipe for the Vieux Ananas recipe that Ezra Star created at Drink and got published in Imbibe Magazine in 2015 through perusing Kindred Cocktails. This tropical spin on the Vieux Carré presented lemon, pineapple, and floral aromas to the nose. Next, caramel and grape on the sip sauntered into rye, rum, pineapple, herbal, and clove flavors on the swallow.
