1/2 oz Rittenhouse Rye
1/2 oz Buffalo Trace Bourbon (Evan Williams Bonded)
1/2 oz Calvados (Morin Selection)
1/2 oz Hine H Cognac (Pierre Ferrand 1840)
1 tsp 2:1 Demerara Syrup (1/4 oz 1:1)
2 dash Angostura Bitters
1 dash Bittermens Mole Bitters (Angostura Cocoa)

Stir with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass with a large ice cube (build in an old fashioned glass, add a large ice cube, and stir). Garnish with a lemon twist and an orange twist.
Two Sundays ago, I opened up the first Death & Co. Cocktail Book and came upon the Conference. This Brian Miller recipe was described as "a Tiki drink disguised as an Old Fashioned" due to the blending of several base spirits to make a new flavor profile akin to the Don the Beachcomber quote "What one rum can't do, three rums can." While the book lacked a date for its creation, the Bittermens site attributed it to 2007. Here, the Conference led off with lemon, orange, and Cognac aromas. Next, a rich sip jumped into rye, apple, Cognac, allspice, chocolate, and clove flavors on the swallow.
