The cigar starts off with a mix of dark wood, earth, dark chocolate and baking spice. At a half inch in, the dark wood and baking spice are up front while the earth and dark chocolate are in the background. At an inch and a quarter, the dark wood gains a little bitterness as the baking spice isn’t far behind it. The earth remains in the background while the dark chocolate is no longer detectable. The retrohale is a mix of the dark wood and baking spice. As the third comes to a close, a bit of chocolate returns while the bitter dark wood remains up front with the baking spice trailing slightly. The strength in this third was right at medium.
