Based in Tennessee, Corsair is constantly experimenting with alternative techniques and flavor profiles, but with well thought out approaches. In this case, they use three individually smoked malts as follows: cherrywood from Wisconsin, Beechwood from Germany, and peat from Scotland. Aged in 15 and 30 gallon new American oak barrels for an unspecified amount of time.

Tasting Notes

"One may think that this would be a smoke bomb as three different types are used here. But the three smokes in combination add more of a flavoring note than anything. The cherrywood smoke is more prominent on the flavor while the peat comes through stronger at the finish. This is reminiscent of a cherry cola without the fizz and sweetness. That's a positive note. The finish is tangy and a bit tight. Could stand to be a higher proof. (review from batch no. 324/aged 7 months)"
