Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Rich and slightly smoky on the nose; it is bolstered by underlying hints of roasted cashew, burnt orange peel, and smoked meat. Easy-going, vanillin, and super smooth with a wisp of peat smoke coming through before finishing with stone fruits and honey.
