Tasting Notes

"Sweet, gentle nose reminiscent of fresh bread, honey and vanilla with a touch of malt. Palate is initially peaty but not overly so with smoke, honey, green apple and malt. No one flavor dominates and the intensity level is not too strong or too weak. Very pleasant. Finish is short and bready with hints of brine."
