Named in honor of Vlad III, Tepes, of the Order of the Dragon. Black musk, tobacco, fir, balsam of peru, cumin, bitter clove, crushed mint, and orange blossom.
In Bottle: sharp green, lots of cedar
Wet: pungent, but pleasantly so, very woodsy
Initial Drydown (first 20 minutes): fresh, piney, masculine, hint of sweet
Lingering Drydown (after 2 hours): mostly gone after two hours :p, mellows nicely though, I think the tobacco is left
Overall Impression: very nice, reminds me of walking through a forest with mixed tree types, but mostly cedar and pine, masculine
In Bottle: Cedar swamp in the spring. Mint?
Wet: spicy, sage, herby, sweet like lilacs
Initial Drydown (first 20 minutes): manly, pine boughs and fresh earthy ferns in a cedar forest. Jasmine green tea
Lingering Drydown (after 2 hours): Very dry cedar, like warm shingles in summer. Dries up quickly.
Overall Impression: This makes me think Druid more than Dracula. If I were a Druid I would smell like this.
