The cigar begins with some spicy cedar, black pepper and an underlying sweetness. At a quarter inch in, some cream joins the profile to add another dimension while all of the other flavors keep their profile intact. The retrohale carries the spicy cedar and pepper which gives a fair amount of zing. At an inch in, all of the flavors are working together pretty well. The spice from the cedar and the black pepper create quite an interesting combination. As the third comes to a close, some mustiness joins in with the spicy cedar, black pepper and cream. The strength in this third was slightly above medium.
