Distribution of ratings for this:
Vanilla and fig show on the bright nose of Johnnie Blue. The palate is very BRIGHT, with white chocolate, vanilla honey, pepper, cinnamon, and some peat smoke. There are some really interesting mint and clove flavors here.
The unfortunate factor here is of course price. A good store will have this around $185 (the distributors tend to drop the price maybe $15 in November and December, in NJ at least). I think this could really compete more seriously were it in the $90-120 range. Rumor has it that Lochnagar makes up a large portion of this blend.
