Initial draws bring a slightly creamy, aged cedar note. At a quarter inch in, a slight minerality joins the profile while the retrohale is carrying the aged cedar note. At three quarters of an inch in, the aged cedar transitions to oak. There is also a slight spiciness now present and hints of minerality remain in the background. At an inch and a quarter, the oak becomes a little darker with some black pepper and minerality in the background. As the third comes to a close, still a dark oak note as the pepper fades away and some minerality remains. Strength in this third was slightly below medium.
