First third starts off right out of the gate with a thick and weighty medium-full bodied smoking experience. The top tier of flavors (ie most dominant and noticeable) consists of very sweet creamy milk chocolate, gritty dirt and minerality. The second tier of flavors (ie less noticeable) has light oak and ripe stone fruit. I don’t get much (or any) spice aside from the retrohale. When retrohaling, black pepper spice is realized as well as an amplified ripe stone fruit. About an inch and a half in, more black pepper spice and oak is realized, giving the cigar profile a greater reach of depth. Also within this point, the body increases to full, as the smoke, in a way, is a lot like drinking heavy whole milk. The strength is at a solid medium throughout the entire first third.
