Tasting Notes

"This is perhaps one of the most balanced of the Booker's special batch selections, with just the right hit of sweetness playing off subtle herbal notes. It's big, sweet, and chewy, with flavors of ripe, red apples, caramel-coated popcorn, peanuts, baking spices and a hint of grassiness that plays off the long, sweet finish. Hit it with a big cube, and a porch at sunset as the BBQ smokes. "
