1 1/2 oz Navazos Palazzi Overseas Malt Whiskey (Kavalan Classic)
1/2 oz Avua Amburana Cachaça (Salinas Umburana)
1/4 oz Galliano Ristretto
1/4 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1 dash Miracle Mile Red Eye Bitters (Bitter Cube Corazon)
1 dash Absinthe (15 drop Copper & Kings)

Stir with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Tuesdays ago, I returned to Death & Co.'s Welcome Home where the Cipher appeared like a great nightcap. This Old Fashioned of sorts was crafted by Sam Johnson in 2019, and like the Long Story Short two nights before, it utilized a 3:1 whiskey to sugar cane spirit split. In the glass, the Cipher generated an orange, coffee, floral, and wood aroma. Next, the coffee liqueur's roast notes flowed through the sip, and the swallow conjured whisky, woody, grassy, coffee, chocolate, and anise flavors.
