The cigar begins with a dry and spicy cedar. At a quarter inch in, a toasted note joins the cedar. At a half inch in, a light black pepper joins the profile. At an inch in, a bit of chalkiness joins in. The retrohale is a mix of cedar, mustiness and chalkiness. At an inch and a quarter, the profile is toasted cedar with a light mix of mustiness, chalkiness and black pepper. At an inch and three quarters, the mustiness has a lead over the toasted cedar and light black pepper as the chalkiness has dropped from the profile. The strength in this third was slightly below medium.
