Initial draws bring a mix of cocoa and peppery cedar. After a few draws, the cocoa goes away and the peppery cedar remains. The retrohale is also a pretty intense peppery cedar. At a quarter inch in, some cream joins in with the peppery cedar both in the mouth and retrohale. The flavors are very full. At an inch in, the pepper calms down and the profile of creamy and peppery cedar is mixing well. The pepper is still a bit intense on the retrohale. At an inch and a quarter, the cedar transitions to oak in the mouth and retrohale. The cream is still present and the pepper is really just apparent on the finish. At an inch and a half, some mustiness joins in with the creamy oak. As the cigar nears the end of the third, a bit of baking spice joins in with the creamy oak and mustiness. The strength in this third is medium-full.
