Made with a quality genever oude this cocktail is almost nutty and makes for an interesting aperitif.
According to his 1935 The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book, Albert Stevens Crockett's recipe was actually 2/3rds genever to 1/3 sweet vermouth but produces an overly dry drink so we've slightly upped the proportion of vermouth to gin.
