Initial draws bring a mix of slightly dry oak and bread. At a quarter inch in, the slightly dry oak remains while the bread transitions to nuttiness which is more in the background. At three quarters of an inch, the oak is still up front and it alternates between a standard oak profile and a slightly younger one with some greenness. The nuttiness in the background is very faint and the retrohale is a slightly charred oak. At an inch in, the profile begins to be that of smoking paper with the hint of oak popping in here and there. At an inch and a half, the oak and paper are about even, and the profile is fairly drying. As the third comes to a close, the paper leaves the profile and the oak gains a bit of char which brings it in line with the retrohale. The strength in this third was right at medium.
