It can’t be! But it is! Now in its fifth year, Peat Week continues to dazzle with feats of peat beyond imagination. Twirling, whirling, and curving through the air—The Greatest Smoke on Earth lands once again in January 2019. The 5th Annual Peat Week is limited to 1,083 bottles worldwide and is on limited allocation.
TASTING NOTES: The festival bottling offers first subtle iodine on the nose then wafts of banana and peach rising beneath the caramel curves of clouds, full to the brim with ash and oak. On the palate, ash and oak rain down filling out the space between delicate milk chocolate, licorice, and the faint remains of what was savory now turned to smoke.
