An Affinity is a slightly different version of the Perfect Manhattan that uses Scotch whiskey as the primary spirit. It is an excellent cocktail to enjoy before dinner. Exactly as with the gin martini, the Scotch in this cocktail will have a completely different flavor if you use a different brand. The Affinity can be balanced nicely with a blended Scotch or with those that have a mellow taste like single malts from the Lowlands, Highlands, or Speyside.
