The cigar begins with oak, grassiness and mustiness. At a quarter inch in, a light baking spice joins. At a half inch in, the grassiness is very faint. At an inch in, the oak gains a light toasted note. The retrohale brings toasted oak, mustiness and faint grassiness. As the third comes to a close, the profile remains slightly toasted oak up front with mustiness and baking spice in the background and some faint grassiness. The strength in this third was right at medium.
