Member Ratings and Notes
N: Peat and a lot of it.  Jammy notes (noted by Herz, and I concurred).
P: Heavy peat, almost too much.
F: Tames a bit in the finish, gets a little sweeter, just enough to get you to take another sip. 
Tame nose, earthy, peaty smoke.  Palate is sugary, wood-smokeyness with cinnamon and jam notes.  The smoke really lingers, although it's kind of a "burnt sticks" type of smoke that I don't really prefer.  Yet it's okay.  Gets better as it goes along, and the sweetness moves more to the fore.
