The cigar begins with a combination of cocoa, dark earth and baking spice. At a quarter inch in, the cocoa fades away as a toasted oak takes its place. At three quarters of an inch in, a light cocoa powder rejoins. The retrohale is toasted oak and dark earth. As the third comes to a close, the profile is toasted oak and dark earth even up front with some baking spice in the middle and light cocoa powder in the background. The strength in this third was right at medium.
