Tasting Notes

"This is on the the sweeter end of the peat spectrum, though somewhat light in weight. There's a pleasant smoked meat flavor (like beef jerky), with pipe tobacco, charcoal, bitter chocolate, salt and seaweed. It's a fun sip, and if you close your eyes, you're standing at the edge of the sea as a yummy BBQ dinner cooks in the near distance. Really gets the palate working! Finishes just a tad hot."
