Judging by the cover of the book, I thought a developing brand plus a high $16 price tag gave me a bit of an eye roll. But when I lit up the Blackbird Macaw and got through the first third, I was happy to be wrong. Beautifully spicy and sweet with a deep, long finish. Regrettably, the next two thirds didn't taste very good as there was too much harshness seeping through. Nice start, but it didn't finish strong.
