In my twenties, working at this fairly divey bar, our staff drank a lot of Old Overholt rye whiskey. I think it was because it was cheap, and very decent quality for a rye whiskey given the price point. The flavors of the whiskey in this cocktail make me think back to those days spent having way too much fun while working in that dark, dingy, basement location.
