I genuinely thought it had a strong Islay Scotch base due to its intoxicating smokiness. Turned out the smoke a result of Lapsang Souchong, a smokey Chinese tea, being infused into vermouth.

It was quite the boisterous drink, as hints of herbal flavours bled into the intense smokiness, and the brighter notes of gin and orange bitters then elegantly balanced it out. With an immaculately smooth finish, this was my favourite off their menu.
