Tasting Notes

"A complex nose lets you hone in on what you're enjoying most, whether it's cinnamon buns and vanilla to, well, campfire-like smoke, with ashy cigars and charred meat. The palate is earthy and phenolic, dominated by peat and smoke, while also showcasing dark chocolate, orange peels, cardamom, and pumpernickel pretzels. A lengthy finish showcases both plums and prunes, black pepper, caramel, and rye spice."
