The cigar begins with a mix of slightly spicy cedar and a floral note with a black pepper finish. At a quarter inch in, the cedar and floral note are pairing nicely. At a half inch in, the black pepper finish is replaced by the spice paired with the cedar. At an inch in, the floral notes reduces a bit as the cedar and cream are paired up front. At an inch and a half in, the floral note increases back up to it’s previous level. The retrohale is primarily the slightly spicy cedar and cream with a much reduced floral note. As the third comes to a close, it is an even mix of the slightly spicy cedar, cream and floral notes. The strength in this third was right at medium.
