rubber soul

2 oz Añejo Rum (RL Seale 10 Year)
1/2 oz Coffee Liqueur (Kahlua)
1 bsp Campari (1/8 oz)
1 dash Bittermens Mole Bitters (2 dash Angostura Cocoa)

Stir with ice and strain into an old fashioned glass with a large cube (build in an old fashioned glass, add a large cube, and stir). Garnish with an orange twist.
Two Tuesdays ago, I turned to the Kindred Cocktails database and landed upon NYC bartender Rafa Garcia Febles' Rubber Soul. He described his 2013 creation named after a Beatles album as an "Aged rum version of the Revolver with chocolate bitters and a bit of Campari." In the glass, the Rubber Soul proffered orange, coffee, and chocolate aromas to the nose. Next, caramel and roast notes on the sip bounced into rum, coffee, bitter orange, and roast flavors on the swallow.
