A strong dose of peat initially. As you get used to the strength and peat, other interesting notes emerge. The smoke is reminiscent a construction site where the wood is being cut with an electric saw. So I obviously smelled saw dust in this. The peat on the palate is balanced by maple syrup, mint and floral stuff. The finish is waxy. Interesting stuff.
