The initial flavor impressions were sweetness, with a delayed hay on the post draw. Significantly more complexity on the retrohale with some medium-minus level of spices. As the Macanudo Inspirado White settles in, there is some nuttiness coming through on the post draw, and pepper that lingers on my lips and the middle of my tongue. As the first third progresses, the pepper joins in with the spices on the retrohale, and the strength level continues to build to a medium plus intensity. After the first inch, the intensity falls off suddenly to a light plus, with the pepper still lingering on the front of my tongue. That initial sweetness also builds up in complexity, with the spices taking over from the pepper as the first third winds down.
