Looks like those were my tasting notes about 9 years ago. I can't say much has changed, except that my nose and palate seem to be more sensitive.
Peat smoke, herbs, mouthwash, eucalyptus, anesthetic rub (?), tree bark, wild berries. The soft viscous mouthfeel of this one is just unparalleled for the price, a bit sea-waterish on the palate, with a huge aspirin-y finish (still mouth-puckering!) that resonates with a powerfully medieval melange of fruity notes.
