Talk about a heavy profile, the cigar begins with a heavy mix of dark wood, cocoa and baking spice. At a half inch in, the intensity of the profile has mellowed slightly, but it is still very heavy and full. The cocoa has faded back while the dark wood and baking spice are up front. The retrohale is very potent with the dark wood and a hint of baking spice. At an inch and a quarter, things have really mellowed and the wood is no longer dark and the baking spice is very mellow allowing a bit of the cocoa to shine through again. As the third comes to a close the wood is up front and the baking spice is very faint with some cocoa undertones. The strength in this third started medium-full but settled in at medium.
