The cigar begins with a mix of wood, dark earth and mustiness. Once the burn gets over the shoulder, the wood has transitioned to an aged cedar with the mustiness accompanying it and the earth lightening up a bit. The retrohale is a musty, general wood note. At an inch in, a light black pepper has joined the profile. As the third wraps up, the aged, musty cedar is up front with the dark earth a bit behind and a mild black pepper in the background. The strength in this third was slightly below medium.
