Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 
Medium-bodied, kind of sweet-smoky-earthy, with citrus/lemon notes.  Finish is medium-long and light, where the palate continues for a moment and then turns mainly into pure, light smoke.   
Chris
 
N: Wow! Very floral and smoky.
P: Nicely balance peat, smoke, and cured meat flavors.
F: Lingering.
Initially impressive, but wears thin by the end of the glass.  It's kinda like beef jerky, the first strip is great, but by the time you get to the bottom of the bag your mouth tastes like dog food.
