Review:

Some Scotch whiskies benefit from the influence of maturation in sherry wine-infused casks. However, this cocktail amplifies the fortified wine influence way beyond what's possible from merely the aging process.

History:

Adapted from a riff on the classic Adonis promoted by Chivas Regal, this cocktail was originally made with Chivas Extra 13 Sherry Cask Finish.
