The second third shows inconsistency. At certain pockets, the cigar is quite good with the same wood bitterness, subtly sweetened cream, layered black pepper and addition of coffee beans. But at other points, the cigar becomes too bitter, gritty and ashy. The finish carries forth the ash and bitter aspects as well. Retrohaling is my favorite part, especially allowing the coffee beans to shine in addition to the same black pepper and sharp cedar. Strength nears medium-full, while body maintains medium.
