The first third is a really nice chocolate and cedar combination to open. The chocolate has several levels of complexity, with baking spices on the retrohale at a balanced light plus. The spices intensify with cedar carrying into the post draw. As the Trinitas settles in, the cedar takes on a tannic quality, and light plus pepper joins the profile. The chocolate keeps shifting from the front to the middle of the palate. The baking spices settle into to a consistent medium strength. Halfway through the first third, post draw cedar has taken on a drying component. There is minerality at the end of the draw, and it carries into the post draw. Chocolate has moved again to the front of the palate with the cedar in the middle.
