How to make:
STIR malt extract in glass with Scotch until malt extract dissolves. Add ice and one shot of Scotch and stir. Add remaining Scotch, sugar and Angostura and stir some more. Add more ice and keep stirring so that ice dilutes the drink.

|2 fl oz||Dewar's 12 Year Old Scotch whisky|
|1⁄4 fl oz||Giffard Sugar Cane Syrup|
|3 dash||Angostura or other aromatic bitters|

If you like Scotch you should try this extra malty dram. After all that stirring you'll deserve one.
Created in 2003 by Shelim Islam at the GE Club, London, England. Shelim named this drink after a horse in the sports section of a paper (also a film made in the seventies starring Robert Redford).
