Review:

A boozy riff on the Last Word made more interesting by subtle notes of peated Islay whisky.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2016 by Martin Bilsborough, Manchester, England. Martin's original recipe called for the glass to be rinsed with Ardbeg. We tried this but preferred the extra hint of peatiness gained by combining an Islay malt with the rest of the ingredients.
