My first few puffs begin with powerful notes of spices, sweetness and cedar. That spice quickly evolves to chili pepper on the lips and at the center of my tongue on the post draw. As the cigar begins to settle in, graham cracker joins the retrohale, with subdued chili pepper to finish. Minutes later, some Connecticut Shade like bitter hay rounds out the profile. Medium plus spice and pepper through the retrohale, as the chili pepper backs off, replaced with some creaminess. Bitterness comes through at the end of the draw and carries into the retrohale. At the halfway point, the creaminess begins to linger into the post draw, as the graham cracker becomes richer and more intense. A dry mouthfeel starts at the bottom half of the third, as cocoa works into the profile. Almond paste is detectable at the 33 minute mark, as the chili and pepper intensity has continued to fall to just over light plus.
