As the cigar starts out, it brings full flavors right out of the gate with creamy wood and baking spices. At a quarter inch in, the cream increases a bit to smooth out some of the baking spice bite. The retrohale carries quite a bit of baking spice that gives a just bearable burn. At an inch in, the wood, cream and baking spice are all at equal levels and the mix is pretty nice. At an inch and a quarter, the retrohale has settled down some and the same core flavors from the mouth draw are present here, but the baking spice is more prominent but isn’t as punishing as earlier. This is the profile the cigar maintains through the end of the third. The strength was slightly above medium.
