Seven Brothers Hickory Smoked, 40%

Price: $33 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: Ted Simmons

Fiery on the nose, with toasted marshmallow, barbecue potato chips, bacon-wrapped melon, vanilla funfetti cake, spiced apples, peppermint, and menthol. The palate is silky and light with notes of vanilla icing and charcoal. With water, woodsmoke, mint jelly, and black coffee. Earthy and dry on the finish with caramel, chocolate, and dusty oak. The smoke adds a layer of intrigue most noticeably on the nose.
