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.
