The draw was slightly tighter than I prefer but didn’t cause any issues with the smoking experience.
Having smoked the 25% version and now this, the 50 does provide more peaty/smoky notes. After the first third though, the profile becomes a bit monotonous as there are really no transitions or nuances. I wouldn’t say that this is as overpowering as the Kentucky Fire Cured, so if you are a peat fan, this cigar might be something you enjoy but don’t want the KFC’s in your face style. I’m not sure I would return to this cigar unless it was something that was in a much smaller vitola just for a short taste of the smokiness. If there was a way to request a The Caleanoch 37, that might be the sweet spot for the right percentage of the peat fired tobacco.
