|1 fl oz||Bourbon whiskey|
|1 fl oz||Spanish brandy|
|1 fl oz||Meletti amaro|
|1 dash||Angostura Orange Bitters|
Equal parts American whiskey, Spanish brandy and Italian amari produces an incredibly complex, spirit-forward, bittersweet Manhattan-like cocktail.
Adapted from a recipe created by Drew Nemetz and Billy Nichols at Simon & The Whale, Freehand Hotel, New York City, USA. "The Whale" in the name of where this drink was first made helps explain the cocktail name inspired by the famous start to the opening chapter of Herman Melville's 1851 novel, Moby-Dick, "Call me Ishmael."
