"Everything is arranged quite deftly, much like a dessert at a white table cloth affair. A whiff of caramelized bananas, green apples, and shaved dark chocolate on the nose. Creamy vanilla-bean ice cream upfront soon evaporates in a poof of smoke leaving white pepper and dry peat on the finish. Grab the proper spoon, lift your pinky, and dig in!"
