pop gun

1 1/2 oz Calvados (Morin Selection)
1/2 oz Islay Scotch (Laphroaig 10 Year)
1/2 oz Coffee Liqueur (Kahlua)
2 dash Orange Bitters (Angostura Orange)

Build in an old fashioned glass, add ice, stir to mix and chill, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Thursdays ago, I opened up the Bartender's Choice app and spotted the Pop Gun as a nightcap idea. The recipe was crafted by Zachary Gelnaw-Rubin at Lion Lion in 2018 as an apple-Scotch riff on the Revolver. Once prepared, it shot forth with orange oil over coffee, apple, whisky, and smoke aromas. Next a roast-driven sip landed upon apple, coffee, and smoke flavors on the swallow. Overall, it yielded a pleasing fruity and smoky variation on the classic.
