This is just really good. All kinds of mixed fruits and melons -- not heavy and overripe ones, but bright fall fruits and such. Very drinkable with just a touch of smoke, and then some grapefruit. Nice long finish with a nice sooty end.

 

A dozen years ago (currently March 2021) I probably would've said this is a little too bitter to get out of the B+ zone, but now it's a clear and easy A-.
