What is this kote gaesh called?

On our last lesson before Christmas, Sensei was showing a few new moves (Christmas treats!) and we did a great kote gaesh, but I can't recall the name.

Nage stands with his hands held behind his back, as if about to be hand-cuffed. Then, with one hand he takes hold of the diagonal wrist of uke and kinda just spins out. The hand that isn't holding on twists out like a cork screw - lead from the elbow, whilst the other hand naturally moves around the wrist and ends up with a perfect opportunity for Kote Gaesh.

Does that ring any bells for anyone? (We've off now for a couple of weeks, so I can't ask Sensei.)

I personally really enjoy the uragaeishi from that same grab, also a blast to do when someone has both of your wrists from behind in a double nikkyo sort of grab.... don't know the japanese name for that grab though!

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
