The cigar begins with aged wood, some nuttiness along with a decent amount of black pepper on the finish. At a half inch in, some cream pairs up with the aged wood and nuttiness as the black pepper mellows slightly. At an inch in, the nuttiness goes away as the aged and creamy wood remain up front with the support of the black pepper. The retrohale carries the nuttiness up front with the creamy wood is in the background. At an inch and a quarter, a mild baking spice enters the profile as the black pepper continues to mellow. At an inch and a half, some nuttiness returns to the profile which pairs with the baking spice to almost create a cinnamon covered nut flavor along with the aged, creamy wood up front. As the third comes to a close, the retrohale is now an equal mix of nuttiness and aged wood. The strength in this third started at slightly above medium but settled in at slightly below medium.
