The initial handful of draws creates a mixture of cocoa, dry earthy minerality and black pepper spice. Quarter inch in, my focus zones in on the cocoa delivery. The cocoa morphs into a decadent chocolate. Mixing with the heat of the black pepper spice, it almost tastes like spicy chocolate. Also at this point, the black pepper intensifies, moving towards the back palate, at times slightly irritating my throat. Through the nose, increased black pepper and sharp cedar. The finish has black pepper on the rear palate and a lengthy semi-sweet creamed nuttiness. In terms of body and strength, medium to medium-full and medium-full, respectively.
