Many people prefer scotch in more traditional terms; neat or on the rocks. The Negroni is a favorite classic, but The Macallan Negroni uses old world port rather than vermouth and Cynar rather than Campari. The peach bitters actually contain a bit of sweetness. The Macallan plays well in this classic cocktail variation.
