Nose: The peat evolves over several minutes. At first cherry and chalk; then just chalk, becoming tar, and softening to rubber and an earthy backyard pile of dried autumn leaves and grass. A soft and almost creamy orange opens up underneath. The final overall impression is not too complex: medicinal rubber with pale orange pulp.

Palate: Sour and then salty red pepper entrance. Becoming a hot & peppery caramel pear, with lightly salty liquorice coating back of tongue.

Finish: Chilis from the grill, their skins blackened and flesh sweetened; fades to chalk. Liquorice hangs on all the while, in back of the mouth. Interestingly, 1 minute into the finish you may taste saffron exhaling through the nose.

Not my preferred set of flavors, but still balanced enough to enjoy. Compared to the Superstition, the Prophecy is richer and sweeter; and the extra 'bite' makes it harsher but more interesting.
