On the first few puffs I’m tasting baking spices, cedar, sweetness, with a delayed pepper hit on the post draw. A few more puffs in and the baking spices become intense on the retrohale, with a faint cocoa underneath. The post draw pepper beings to intensify as it lingers on my lips between draws. As the first third starts to establish itself, there is mustiness on the retrohale, as the intense retrohale spices and post draw pepper begin to fall in strength. Once the intense spices have subsided I’m tasting plums and barbecue on the retrohale. As the Grimalkin moves towards the second third, there is additional sweetness on the palate, with the spices and pepper continuing to fall to light strength.
