Cocktail Inspiration:

Arsland is a region in Scotland where some of the best walnuts in the world come from. When putting together a fall menu I wanted to introduce people to a palatable scotch with a deceivingly smoky nose that was balanced to drink and full of deep rich bitter notes balanced with a Smokey maple sweetness.
