    This is a cold day in winter, by the fireside type drink ! The drinker may want to add "more" or less single malt whiskey to taste ! 10/10

    A Rusty Nail is specifically made with Drambuie. A Canadian Whiskey can be used in place of Scotch. With Drambuie , The Canadian version is called a "Donald Sutherland". I wonder what to call Canadian Rye Whiskey and Glayva? Maybe a Wayne Gretzky.

    Yeah, I thought it was a rusty nail (when you mix a plain scotch whisky with a scotch besed liqueur) but I'm assuming the 'Trusty Snail' terms demonstrates the face of Glayva being the choice of liqueur instead of Drambuie is most commonly used to form the rusty nail cocktail

    Isn't this a 'Rusty Nail'?

    Not as sickly sweet as Glayva is by itself, but not as harsh as Scotch is by itself. I used a 12 year Glennfiddich single malt and the result was very decent as a sipping drink. I think the use of a 15 or 18 year scotch would be unnecessary as they wouldn't be hard enough to take the sweetness off the Glayva. An 18 or older scotch would be an absolute waste and desecration. Also, the lime didn't do a whole lot for the drink so I would omit it.
