Boulder Spirits Peated Malt, 47%

Price: $54 Issue: Summer 2021 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Sweet barbecue smoke, vanilla bean, milk chocolate, sesame breadstick, grilled apples, and charred peppers on the nose. On the palate, the smoke is sweet and savory, a little meaty—grilled sausage—and supported by dark chocolate and tobacco leaf. There's also lemon and orange oil, raspberry, vanilla, and satisfying nuttiness. More sweet-savory smoke into the gently fading finish, overlaid on cocoa powder, mint leaf, and vanilla.
