The final third continues with the dry earth out front, wood in the middle and light black pepper in the background. At an inch in, the earth gains a bit of toastiness. The retrohale remains an even mix of earth, wood and mustiness. At an inch and a quarter, the toast transitions to char and brings a slight bitterness to the profile. As the cigar comes to a close, the profile remains dry earth up front, charred wood in the middle and light black pepper in the background. The strength in this third bumped up to medium.
