Tasting Notes

"Zesty lemon, smoke, and iodine notes come say "hello" at first sniff, followed by buttery vanilla and cut grass. The palate is surprisingly sweet with caramel paste, honey-glazed barbecued bacon slices, lemongrass and charcoal. The finish is a bit spicier. The perfect companion for a BBQ evening with some friends."
