​Heat and concentration comes at you before you even smell. Funky algae-water barnyard and a peppery desert wind blossoms to full-on eucalyptus black cherry syrup and Mexican laundry. Turpentine flows off this thing like POTUS-tweets after a cross-burning, and the dull burnt, saccharine-triggered version of varietal fruit it paints is about as realistic as Marine World representing sea-life. That Tabasco burn in the finish is all the tannin I hoped for.
