The draw was also flawless giving the ideal air flow.
The experience can be summarized as a promising and great first third (special shout out to the body and tannins) followed by a mediocre cedar and light baking spice delivery within the remaining two thirds. The first third showed so much promise, providing traditional Connecticut Shade like flavors (nuts, bread, baking spices, cedar), but instead of ramping to more depth of flavors, it was the opposite, and lacked character and depth. There was perfection in burn and draw performance, but that doesn’t quite make up for the lack in total flavor experience. As such, for me, it will have to be a pass.
