This had the aromatics of regular Bhut, but cleaner, fresh and citrusy. This pod had a lot of placental tissue and oil, not too many seeds. It tasted much like it smelled, citrusy, Bhut-like. There was some initial burn when chewing, but the real pain started after swallowing. The build-up was moderate, but a bit of a creeper. I had a lot of salivation, and eyes watering. I felt a heat bomb starting in my gut, but that dissipated.
