This drink, a variation on the classic Manhattan, isn't always served an "equal parts" drink; often the ration is two parts Scotch to one part vermouth. That said, this equal-parts version works remarkably well, especially if you prefer a slightly sweeter and less potent pour. However you choose to make yours, be sure to toast the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York, where the drink was created 1894.
