The cigar begins with cedar and a floral perfume note. At a quarter inch in, a fair amount of black pepper joins the profile. At a half inch in, the black pepper mellows and there is a pretty even mix with the cedar, black pepper and floral perfume. The retrohale starts with a slight black pepper bite and then a musty floral note follows. At an inch and a quarter, the cedar has the lead as some mustiness joins in and is even with the pepper while the floral note is light in the background. As the third comes to a close, all components come back to an even level. The strength in this third was slightly above medium.
