The initial draws bring some grassiness as it burns through the closed candela foot. As the exposed candela is burned through, I begin picking up some wood along with a mild black pepper. At a half inch in, a heavy and gritty earthiness has joined the wood and mild black pepper. At an inch in, the pepper has dissipated and the wood and earthy notes remain. The retrohale consists of a very musty wood note with some dry earthiness. As the third comes to a close, the earthiness lightens up a bit as the wood has a slight lead. The strength in this third was right at medium.
