Difford's Guide remains free-to-use thanks to the support of the brands in red above.
A quartet of whiskies: bourbon, rye, blended Scotch and Islay single malt, stirred with, and lightly sweetened and flavoured by amaretto liqueur. The result is a complex, balanced and lightly nutty after-dinner cocktail. If you like this, then also consider a Madurised Almond Old Fashioned.
Created in June 2016 by Simon Difford at The Cabinet Room, London, England.
