The flavor first impression was light spices mixed with peanuts. I found myself salivating a lot with each draw. As the first third settled in, some light pepper started to linger on my lips and at the back of my throat. That pepper was intensified through the retrohale, along with some rich spices and sweetness, up to a medium-plus strength. The sweetness served to balance the pepper and spice intensity. The peanut flavor that started the cigar off began to build and linger between draws. At around the 10 minute mark, the pepper and spice combination on the retrohale starts to ease in intensity back down to a medium minus. At the 25 minute mark, some powdered cocoa mixes into the sweetness, at about a light strength level, along with some citrus. As the Reggae moves into the middle third the spices and pepper pick back up to a medium intensity.
