Tasting Notes

"Milk chocolate covered candied oranges lead on the nose, with sherried fruits and citrus peel, all atop of a sultry, smoky, salty side underneath. The palate gets started with more sherry, showcasing walnuts, dark red fruits, dark chocolate, and burnt caramel, along with sea salt, as well as iodine and seashell. A tingly finish showcases salt and pepper, with resonating smoke and earthy peat."
