"Smoke Signal | Crafted Pour"

Further sampling gave way to warm clove and nutmeg spices, and the flavour of tobacco in this form is really so delicious and interesting.

An awesome new butcher shop opened here recently, and they were selling this smoked honey. I knew these bitters were en route, so I grabbed a jar of that and made a cinnamon syrup with it.
