Noses of farm yard stuff like wet hay and grass.  But is distinctly very (bee) waxy. Sweetness of twizzlers candy.  The peat is in moderation and quite sweet on the palate.  Fainter ferric tea notes emerge along side bits of honey.  Theres quite a bit of spiciness here as well and I wrote "habanero."  Probably more in line with the lingering heat from the spice.

 

This has a waxy clynelish profile and was pretty darn good.
