I first noticed light notes of apricot, followed by peat moss, Tupelo honey, and tobacco.

Hearty, earthy, but not overbearing.

Moderate bitterness and slightly sharp.

The flavor lingers in the mouth a while.

There’s some character to it, but there’s nothing strange going on in the flavor profile.

It would be a solid daily-drinker.

Flavor notes: Apricot, peat moss, Tupelo honey, earth, and tobacco.
