black scottish cyclops

2 oz Laphroaig Scotch
1 oz Ramazzotti Amaro
4 dash Fee's Whiskey Barrel-Aged Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into an old fashioned glass with two ice cubes.
After buying a replacement bottle of Ramazzotti, I decided to make a Black Manhattan variation in Brad Parson's Bitters book. That recipe was the Black Scottish Cyclops crafted by Rocky Yeh that was named after a character in the video game Team Fortress 2. Here, the Black Scottish Cyclops lept to the nose with peat smoke and caramel aromas. Next, caramel and malt on the sip charged forth into a smoky Scotch, herbal, and root beer flavors on the swallow with a smoke, cinnamon, and char finish.
