Review:

Crème de Noyau's fruity, almond-like notes combine with brandy in this late-night sipper.

History:

The Newport first appears in R. de Fleury's 1934 book 1700 Cocktails for the Man Behind the Bar with the same recipe repeated in the 1937 The UKBG's Approved Cocktails.

NEWPORT
33⅓% Noyau.
66⅔% Brandy.
3 dashes Angostura Bitters.
Mix and serve with a piece of lemon peel.

United Kingdom Bartenders' Guild, 1934

This cocktails was kindly bright to my attention in 2022 by Jason E. Clapham of the St. Edward's MCR at Oxford, with the notation, "The original spec states 2:1, which for Tempus Fugit Crème de Noyaux would be far too sweet. Better than I expected."
