Bouquet - Sultry layers of smoke, clove and vanilla aredeftly interlaced with citrus nuances.
Taste - Earthy, smoky flavors, soft sweet and warm.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - (Tried & True Award)- Sweet cedar and grass are pleasantly smoky in the nose. Decidedly savory on the palate there is tons of deeply concentrated charred wood flavor with notes of coffee and mesquite, and a piquant mouth feel that lingers long. (Mar 2015)
