The Trapline Old Fashioned was created by George Englestad, a brand ambassador for Angel’s Envy whiskey, as a tribute to his father. Englestad’s father taught him how to hunt, camp, and tap maple trees, and those memories of S’mores by the campfire made their way into this smoky-sweet riff on a classic.
Englestad calls for Laphroaig, a scotch whisky with enormously smoky, peaty flavors. You can use any scotch you like – but the smokier, the better.
Stir with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Englestad finishes his with a spray of rye whiskey, which is nice but not obligatory.
