The last third is all over the map in the flavor category. The consistent notes are dry wood and plum-like stone characteristics. At various points, the profile becomes a bit too harsh, over-shadowing the above mentioned notes. Also, some metallic notes are tasted halfway through, perhaps a function of the cigar’s youth. The retrohale loses a good amount of it’s richness, now mainly providing sharp black pepper. The finish is a lasting dry wood with soft bitterness weighing especially on the tongue. Body and strength is still, for the most part, medium.
