The Rusty Nail is the ultimate in Scotch cocktails and if you are interested in that style of whiskey, this is a drink you should be familiar with.

Traditionally, this classic cocktail is made with blended Scotch, though Glenlivet 15 year single malt is my Scotch of choice here. Experiment with different Scotches and add more or less Drambuie (a Scotch-based liqueur) to suit your tastes.
