Review:

Rich (medium-dry and spirituous this old-fashioned is all too easy to drink and fortunately, easy to make.

History:

As with the Martini, the glass this cocktail is served in has taken the name of the drink. Its origin stems from the adaptation and renaming of a similar drink known as the Whisky Cocktail, which was shaken and served up. Who did the adapting and renaming is unknown. For the full story, see Old-Fashioned cocktail history.
