My first few puffs bring dry cedar and faint powdered cocoa. There’s some medium strength spices on the retrohale giving way to black pepper on the post draw. After several more draws the powdered cocoa starts to bleed into the post draw, coating the inside of my mouth and tongue. Once the first third settles in, the pepper on the post draw and retrohale starts to intensify rapidly. After 5-10 minutes the pepper intensity begins to pull back to medium-full, as the powdered cocoa moves towards full. At the halfway point, the flavor continues to evolve in complexity, as some savory barbecue flavors joins in. At the bottom half of the first third, there is nuttiness, along with sweet citrus. By the 1 hour smoking time I’m feeling a fair amount of strength hit home.
