N: Medicinal with wet wood.  Is definitely got peat but the peat is mixed in with sour oak.  There is something weird here I can't describe.  Only word that comes to mind is "industrial".  Eh, make what you will with that.

P: Good peaty notes.  But the peat seems restricted as if being held back.  Toasted bread and herbal qualites come through on the mid palate.

F: Suprisingly a bit briney with bitter citrus.

 

I liked the taste much better than the nose.  That really saved this one and kept it just above C+.

n:  Wierd.  Like some sort of synthetic fabric on a toy.  Not great.

 

p:  Tangy water from a rusty pail.  Staleness with a hint of peat.
