Tasting Notes

"The nose is round and complex with lots of bright tangerine, lemon and orange, with sweet notes of caramel and honey, followed by dark chocolate, salted nuts, toasted cereal grains and hints of peat smoke. The palate is far less sweet than you might expect however the complexity continues with some great flavors of bright green apple, more orange and tangerine, spicy black pepper, toffee, and cocoa with a smoky element of tobacco and peat. There is lingering spice on the finish with salty sweet chocolate-covered caramel and wisps of campfire. "
