The cigar begins with a mix of wood, baking spice and light cocoa. At a half inch in, the baking spice has a slight lead over the wood and cocoa. The retrohale is a very full with nostril tingling baking spice. At an inch and a quarter, a light mustiness joins the profile. As the third comes to a close, the baking spice is up front with the wood slightly behind and the cocoa and mustiness are light in the background. The strength in this third was slightly above medium.
