The cigar begins with toasted cedar, mustiness and slight bitterness. At a half inch in, some nuttiness and light coffee join in as the bitterness is now quite faint. At an inch in, the nuttiness leaves as the cedar is now more of a toasted oak along with some mustiness, light coffee and light black pepper. The bitterness is now completely gone. The retrohale starts with black pepper and mustiness and then some oak cuts through. As the third comes to a close, the profile is now toasted oak, hay, mustiness and light black pepper. The strength in this third was slightly below medium.
