The nose opens with honeycomb candy (or Bit-O-Honey for those that remember that). Then, there are some fuel type notes, like you dropped your Bit-O-Honey in a mysterious puddle at the mechanic's shop, plus peat and sulfur. The palate opens with a similar mix of flavors - lots of honey plus peaty, fuel type notes. Then there are some sulfur notes which come to dominate the late palate. The finish is mostly peat. This one is a bit weird, but I like it. It's sweet and bold and leaves you feeling peaty. 
Ries
 

n: phenolic with red berries smouldering in a fire. Freshly dug earth, ash, and dried mango.

 

t: driftwood charcoal, grey sea salt and smoked red jam - nicely sweet in the initial taste. Plastic and ashy in the middle with mouth drying tannins. Goes from sweet to sour and back to sweet in the end. Raspberries and charred driftwood in the satisfying finish. Fun stuff!  [B, gets almost near a B+]
