Shine like a diamond

I was looking for an older standard tonight, so I mixed a Diamondback. This deceptively simple rye drink is a lovely contrast in flavors (spicy rye, sweet apple brandy, and herbal chartreuse), but still sweet enough for easy sipping (yellow chartreuse is one of my favorite herbal spirits).
