As I begin smoking, I taste spices, pepper, chocolate, leather and cedar all on the retrohale. The post draw begins to develop light leather and cedar. A few minutes later, a syrupy sweetness comes through on the regular draw as the spices and pepper ramp up aggressively. That pepper begins to carry into the post draw, leaving impressions of chili pepper flakes. As the Las 6 Provincias settles in, the chocolate moves up to medium strength. At the 20 minute mark, the spice backs off, but there is still a medium strength chili pepper flake that harmonizes with the chocolate. The complexity continues to build at the halfway point, as the spices and chili flake fall to light plus allowing more harmonization. At the bottom half of the first third, some caramel sweetness takes over from the post draw leather, and then takes on a malty sweet aspect.
