Created in 2018 by Josh Davies at The Hedonist Project in Leeds, England, this cocktail was originally based on Chivas 12 Year Old Scotch, and was created for the 2018 Chivas Masters Competition in London. Josh's original spec calls for this drink to be served over a large ice cube in a coupe. Seems wrong to put a huge chunk of ice in a delicate coupe so we've used an old-fashioned glass.
