The cigar begins with toasted cedar, dry earth and light bitterness. At a quarter inch in, the bitterness has departed and the profile is an even mix of toasted cedar and dry earth. The retrohale is toasted cedar and a light chalkiness. At an inch in, a light chalkiness joins the profile. At an inch and a quarter, a light mustiness joins and pairs up with the chalkiness. As the third comes to a close, the profile is toasted cedar and dry earth even up front with a light mix of mustiness and chalkiness in the background. The strength was slightly below medium.
