First thirds flavor profile is one that works in unison quite well. Consistent notes of sugar, cream, bread, roasted dried nuts, charred wood, hay and slight black pepper spice. Through the retrohale, both the black pepper spice and cream is further realized. Although this is a small cigar, I smoked through the entire first third (roughly 1.5 inches) in just a matter of 8 to 9 minutes (perhaps due to the soft feel within the foot area). Body and strength within the entire first third is at a solid medium.
