The cigar begins with a dark, earthy, woody and spicy profile. A quarter inch in, this profile is working together nicely. The retrohale is earthy with a medium level pepper to it. At a half inch in, the spice settles way down and the earthiness lessens a bit while the wood is up front. At an inch in, the wood is staying up front while the earthiness and pepper are at the same levels in the background. The retrohale has now lost the pepper and is just earth. As the third comes to a close, some cream joins in with the wood and pushes out the spice while the earthiness is still in the background. The strength in this third is medium-full.
