1 1/2 oz Scotch (Famous Grouse)
1/2 oz Islay Scotch (Laphroaig 10 Year)
1/2 oz Amaro Braulio
1/8 oz Honey Syrup
1 pinch Salt

Build in an old fashioned glass, add ice, stir to mix and chill, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Sundays ago, I was perusing some online flashcards when I spotted a drink that I recalled seeing on the Bartender's Choice app called the Edinburgh. The app attributed the drink to Mike Dolfini at Nashville's Attaboy location in 2019, and I was curious to see how Scotch and Braulio would play together. In the glass, the Edinburgh donated a lemon, caramel, peat smoke, and herbal bouquet to the nose. Next, honey and caramel on the sip gave way to smoky Scotch, pine, bitter herbal, and mint flavors on the swallow.
