Lightly sweetened Scotch with a touch of aromatic bitter spice: like a homemade whisky liqueur.
Named after what is perhaps the world's most famous steam locomotive, The Flying Scotsman set two world records, the first steam locomotive reach 100 miles per hour and the longest non-stop run by a steam locomotive (422 miles in 1989 whilst in Australia). The Flying Scotsman was built in 1923 for the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) at Doncaster and took its name from London to Edinburgh Flying Scotsman express service which it ran. This cocktail was apparently originally served to first-class passengers on board the train.
