Michael Neff's Bravo Cocktail

This boozy little cocktail isn't for those who stay safe with a vodka soda. It's the latest in a series of experiments I've conducted using different styles of whiskey in the same drink. I like the interplay between the mild peat flavor of the Sheep Dip with the delicate spice notes of the Templeton Rye.
