In describing this dessert, Mark Bitterman predicts, "Your first bite will expand the boundaries of sensation separating your mouth from the rest of your body, and you'll be feeling spiciness in the warmth of your hands and smokiness in the tingling of your toes." That may seem like an awful lot to expect out of a simple roasted peach, but the combination of peaches, bourbon syrup, and smoked salt truly is sublime. Bitterman recommends using Maine apple smoked salt, which can be purchased at his salt shop, The Meadow.
