Sweet cedar starts the first third, with light plus baking spices moving into the retrohale. Some creaminess comes through immediately as chocolate develops only a few puffs later. Dry cedar takes up the post draw. As the cigar settles in, the chocolate, creaminess and baking spices are harmonizing well, with the post draw cedar drying the palate. The baking spices move up to medium strength, lingering between draws. Approaching the halfway point, cedar is at the front of the profile, at times overwhelming the other flavors.
