You lift the coupe glass to your mouth and the fragrance of the orange oil overtakes your senses for a second. You don’t really know yet, what to expect from this drink. Then you start sipping. You feel fruits and sweetness from the cognac and the exquisite coffee taste from Mr. Black in your mouth. As you swallow you notice the smokiness from the Islay single malt and then poof… it’s all gone… You wait a couple seconds to appreciate what just happened. Then you do it again.
Add Mr.Black, cognac, scotch, simple syrup and the bitters to a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.
Strain into a chilled coupe.
Express the orange twist over the drink, then gently rub it around the rim of the glass and place it into the drink.
