monte burns

2 oz Scotch (Cutty Sark Prohibition)
3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi)
1/4 oz Amaro Montenegro
2 dash Angostura Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Fridays ago, I returned to the recipe collection on Sam Ross' Bartender's Choice app and landed up the Monte Burns. This was Tim Phillips riff on the Bobby Burns with Amaro Montenegro in place of the Benedictine, and he named his creation at London's Milk & Honey circa 2009 after the character in The Simpsons, C. Montgomery Burns. Once stirred and strained, the Monte Burns provided a lemon and peat smoke aroma. Next, grape and orange notes on the sip released Scotch, clementine, apricot, clove, and allspice flavors on the swallow.
