The cigar begins with a mix of wood, cocoa and heavy baking spice, almost like a really amped up Mexican hot chocolate. At a quarter inch in, the cocoa fades to the background while the wood and baking spice are very full up front. At three quarters of an inch in, the profile mellows out a bit as the wood and baking spice are less full and the cocoa is an unsweetened cocoa powder and is even with the other notes. At an inch in, a slight creaminess joins the profile. The retrohale consists of wood, baking spice and cream. A little further in, the baking spice is very faint while the wood, cocoa powder and cream are at equal levels. As the third comes to a close, the cream increases and takes a slight lead over the wood and cocoa powder. The strength in this third was slightly above medium.
