Review:

Does the choice of whisky coupled with maple syrup suggest Randy, the drinker this cocktail was created for, was/is Canadian? Grapefruit freshens while maple syrup adds deep flavoursome richness.

History:

Adapted from a cocktail on the menu of the Dragonfly Cocktail Bar in Edinburgh, Scotland circa 2015-18. Brought to my attention thanks to a comment by a fellow Discerning Drinker, Charl Engela on our Maple Old Fashioned page.
