The first few puffs are very creamy, leaving a light powdered cocoa taste and mouthfeel. Mild baking spices begin to develop along with cedar that lingers on the post draw. That cedar increases in intensity on the post draw rapidly, and brings some leather with it. As the cigar settles in, there’s a meaty sweetness anchoring the profile together. The leather stops increasing in intensity around 20 minutes settling at at medium minus intensity. At the 30 minute mark, some rich earthiness comes through at the end of the draw and carries into the post draw. By the end of the first third, the profile is defined by cedar and leather.
