This is a version of Nick Strangeways cocktail that I have always liked which I believe he first did at Che. A slight variation on his in that I have used an essence of tabacco, a smoke essence and some leather essence all food grade. This also varies in that it has whisky with a lemon twist.
The idea was to put the idea of the drink inside the drink ie. a sit down in big leather sofa with a cigar and smoke swirling drink! These essences where all mixed in a sugar syrup soultion that also has gum arabic this give a great mouth feel or silkiness.
