¾ oz. Scotch
¾ oz. Carpano Antica sweet vermouth
½ oz. rye whiskey
¼ oz. armagnac
1 barspoon Bénédictine
2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
1 dash Angostura bitters
Lemon peel
Tools: mixing glass, barspoon
Glass: rocks

Combine all the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir until chilled. Twist a lemon peel over the top of the drink and discard.
