Member Ratings and Notes

N: Farmy peat, motor oil, garage smells, gunpowder.  It smells like War.  Like when I was in the s*** in Nam'.
P: Really nice dirty peat, greasy, funky, and smokey.  
F: Lingering diesel and other bizarre stuff.
Hardcore, man, hardcore.

Nose of various phenols -- smoked earth, iodine, and coal.  The palate is a sweet peat treat.  Fruity.  The smoke is restrained, though unmistakably present.  Interesting antiseptic notes too.  The finish is surprisingly short-ish -- and it grows more antiseptic here -- with faint smokey/medicinal hints lingering much longer.  The flavor is huge for 40%, and never overwhelming, but always satisfying.  YUM.
