The cigar begins with wood, a dry earthiness and a very mild baking spice. At a half inch in, the spice level picks up a little bit. The retrohale is bringing a profile of slightly spicy cedar along with the dry earthiness. At an inch in, the wood has transitioned to a spicy cedar while the earthiness remains and isn’t quite as dry as before. As the third comes to a close, the spicy cedar reverts back to a general wood note while the earthiness remains and a slight cocoa has joined in. The strength in this third was mild-medium.
