Scotch Mist

The Scotch Mist is almost not a mixed drink. It's really more of a crushed ice pour with a twist, but did that ever change the profile of this single malt. GlenDronach is probably the heaviest highland single malt I have on my bar. It floors you with lots of peat and smoke and heaps of oloroso sherry dried fruit flavor. I remembered it was almost too much to take when I tried it neat. It was the perfect scotch to do the Scotch Mist with because I relied on its strength to carry through the citrus nose. The quickly melting ice really opened up the scotch and made it a fast drink, not a slow sipper.
  • 2 oz. scotch (GlenDronach 12 used)
  • lemon peel
 Build drink in a highball glass full of crushed ice. Twist lemon peel over ice and drop in.
