N: Dry on the nose, with an even mix of pepper and wood. Fairly sharp, a bit of prickling. Very dry rye notes with a faint hint of black pepper. A touch of red wine as well.  

P: Caramel, sweet but with a slightly sour edge to it. Plenty of heat on the palate. A bit of maple syrup and cinnamon. A slight bit of black cherry that's just a touch syrupy and sweet too.

F: Drying off again - rye, pepper, a hint of celery root. A bit of orange and cinnamon as well. Moderately long finish. 
 
Too dry on the nose and the finish for me to really like this one much. Not bad; just a matter of personal taste.
