This Black and Red recipe is a close variation of the Manhattan and differs only by specifying the whiskey.

Black Bush is a sweeter Irish whiskey which works really well with the sweet vermouth in this drink. The bitters are an accent and tame some of the sweetness, I like the complexity of Angostura here but Regan's Orange Bitters No. 6 adds an interesting citrus note that's nice as well.
