The cigar begins with a very sharp wood/metallic note along with some black pepper. At a quarter inch in, the sharpness lessens as the wood becomes a bit more defined to go along with the black pepper. At an inch in, a slight creaminess has joined in with the slightly sharp wood and black pepper. The retrohale carries a bit of a zing as it’s wood, cream and baking spice. At an inch and a quarter, a faint baking spice makes its way to the mouth draws. As the third comes to a close, the profile falls into an average mix of slightly charred wood and a bit of cream. The strength in this third was slightly below medium.
