In brief: Blood alcohol

Cirrhosis should not change this value, although it may alter the duration or persistence of alcohol in the blood.

In brief: Metabolized slower

alcohol may well stay in system longer as can no longer be processed normally.
but shouldn't give a higher initial BAC, just slow clearance.
