The cigar begins with dark wood, bakers chocolate, earth and a faint black pepper. At a quarter inch in, some mustiness joins as the chocolate departs. At a half inch in, the profile is dark wood, earth and mustiness as the black pepper has now departed. The retrohale is musty wood, earth and faint black pepper. At an inch and a quarter, some char joins the dark wood. At an inch and a half, some bakers chocolate returns to the profile. As the third comes to a close, the profile is charred dark wood, mustiness, earth and light bakers chocolate. The strength in this third was slightly above medium.
