blazing saddles

2 oz Rye Whiskey (Rittenhouse Bonded)
1/2 oz Amaro Montenegro
1/4 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/4 oz Laphroaig 10 Year Scotch
3 dash Fee's Black Walnut Bitters (6 dash Strongwater Mountain Elixirs Walnut Bitters)

Stir with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with ice, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Mondays ago, I delved into a set of online recipe flashcards that I uncovered from the Eddy in Providence, Rhode Island. There, the Blazing Saddles that I was able to pin down to 2016 from a menu photo uploaded to Yelp seemed like an intriguing start that reminded me of the Battle Annie with the American whiskey, smoke, Montenegro, and cinnamon syrup components. Once stirred and strained, Blazing Saddles galloped to the senses with an orange, cinnamon, and hint of smoke aroma. Next, a light caramel sip settled into rye, cinnamon, clementine, and peat smoke flavors on the swallow.
