I prefer more precision when making my cocktails, so I've been using this formula for my Old Crotchety Fashioned:
2.5 oz rye/bourbon (usually Ritt BIB/Bulleit)
1/4 oz Cointreau
1/4 oz Simple syrup
5-6 shakes of Angostura bitters
Having one right now with GD12 replacing the RITT since it was open, mighty tasty. The next one will be with the RITT for comparison.
Sounds good to me. I've been doing a version of this for a while using Ferrand Dry Orange Curaçao. Good stuff.
Definitely drink it...tonight -Sutton
I made a couple of these tonight. First with WTR101 and then with the TPS Groundbreaker (Willett 4 yr rye). The WTR was good the groundbreaker was fantastic. Thanks for the recommendation.

Just ran across this today and road tested one tonight:
3 good shakes Angostura
enough Leopold Orange Liquor to swish around the bottom
3 oz. Pikesville Supreme Rye
stirred and added a big round sphere ice cube
excellent drink! Thanks for the idea.
No orange liquor in the house so I improvised the idea with orange bitters and a muddled(very thin cut) orange slice.
2.5 oz High West Double Rye
8 dashes orange bitters
1/4tsp agave syrup
muddled orange slice
stirred in a rocks glass and added a 2" cube.
