The cigar begins with some light, aged cedar and cinnamon. After a few draws, the cedar loses the aged note and the cinnamon really intensifies and lingers on the roof of my mouth after each draw. At a half inch in, the profile settles in as the cinnamon calms down and begins to mix in well with the cedar. At three quarters of an inch, the cinnamon transitions to black pepper which is also pretty heavy in the mix with the cedar. The retrohale is a slight charred and creamy wood. At an inch and a quarter, the pepper really drops back quite a bit and the cedar transitions to an aged oak note which is very smooth. The retrohale also carries the smooth aged oak. The strength in this third began medium-full, but by the end was slightly above medium.
