Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points (Apr 2014)
Toasted oak shines through a bouquet of campfire smoke, sweetgrass, apricot preserves and ripe mango. A delicate sweetness in the mouth is balanced by savory, meaty flavors and a touch of tropical fruit. A surprisingly smooth finish with plentiful mango undertones follows.
The first nosings find clean, apple peel-like and peat-free scents; later inhalations find a more sea breeze like, mildly briny character. Palate entry is lean, earthy, moderately smoky and lemony; midpalate is oily with flavors of ash, peat, sweet malt and brine. Concludes sweet, peaty and cigarette ash-like, with a bite of green olive. P.P. (4/1/2008) 90-95
