The cigar begins with toasted and lightly charred cedar along with some baking spice and a light mustiness. At a quarter inch in, the draw starts with a big blast of hay before the rest of the profile breaks through. Also, the baking spice is now black pepper. At three quarters of an inch in, the profile is now slightly toasted wood up front, with hay and mustiness right behind and some light black pepper on the finish. The retrohale has the toasted wood, hay, mustiness and light black pepper all very intertwined. At an inch and a quarter, the toasted wood, hay and mustiness are all even with the black pepper still in the background. The strength in this third was slightly below medium.
