Nose – Vanilla birthday cake. Green beans. A sprinkle of white pepper.

Palate – Assorted jelly beans (I can’t nail down the flavor). White cheddar. Light white pepper. Olive oil. Roasted haricots. Smoke is nice in the finish – it has a little, itty bit of funkiness to it. Really good stuff!

Aroma of spicy green pepper, linen paper, and kindling smoke. Taste is bold and assertive. Green jelly bean, peppermint leaf, green juice, and a clean, but fragrant smoke. Viscous in the mouth and some alcohol heat lingers for a long time. Powerful, yet restrained. This keeps getting better and better every time I try it.
