This is a very complex cocktail with layers of flavor unfolding with each sip. The immediate pop of sweetness from the peach comes to the forefront before melting to a gin spirit note that is perfectly present but not overpowering, and finishing with the tartness of the lemon and herbaceousness of the basil. This is a great cocktail for sitting and sipping in the warm spring sun, on the balcony overlooking Paradise Bay. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely try it again.

This is really good, possibly the best cocktail of the whole Food & Wine Festival, but not as good as some of the cocktails available on the standing menu. It’s sweeter than one would expect, which is a little disappointing. The bourbon comes through well and gives it a real spirit forward character, and a subtle hint of pineapple undertones are very welcome.

There isn’t much smoke flavor as the title claims, which is too bad because that would really make this sing. Overall, it’s a well crafted cocktail and it’s definitely drinkable but nothing truly spectacular.
