This prized Turkish pepper has the smoky scent of an expensive peaty scotch. Its initial momentary sweetness is followed by a complex and very satisfying blend of tobacco, raisin, and chocolate flavors that is capped off by a long, slow, mild burn and smooth mouth feel. It pairs brilliantly with chocolate.
Urfa Biber (biber is the Turkish word for pepper) was a favorite of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent who ruled the Turkish Ottoman empire in the 16th century. He reputedly had barrels of the pepper transported with his troops on his many military campaigns to spark their stamina and fighting spirit. Let us spark yours!
