Briny peat weaves through whipped cream, Bosc pear, and lemon peel on the undiluted nose; with water, it opens to reveal layer upon layer of sweetness, from fresh blueberries to brown sugar and cinnamon coffee cake, molasses, raisins, and dried currants. On the palate, the interplay of char and ash with vanilla, brown sugar, golden raisins, and blueberry jam is punctuated with cinnamon, pepper, and minty tobacco. Beautiful length on the savory finish. (238 bottles)
