The draw was fairly snug and it’s hard to tell if it contributed to the burn issues.
The flavor profile in the first third was pretty nice with wood, cream, baking spice and licorice. In the second third things dropped down as it became primarily charred, musty wood and carried that through the end. Construction, primarily the burn was pretty bad and I’m sure all of the re-lights took a toll on flavor. I’d be interested in trying this again, hoping for a better burn to see if it improved flavor delivery. The price point is a bit high, so that tempers my chances of actually revisiting it. This isn’t something I could really recommend even trying unless your curiosity is strong enough.
