"Aromas of sweet peat, lemons, stewed pears and sauerkraut pop up from the glass. There's some licorice and cinnamon as well. Very inviting. The palate is very smoky and ashy, with a layer of sweet cherries and dark notes of tobacco and chocolate. The finish lingers on smoke and cocoa powder for a long time."
