The cigar begins with an abundance of a general wood note along with some creaminess and a very mild black pepper note. At a half inch in, the cream and pepper are now both very faint while the wood remains the star of the show. At an inch in, some mustiness joins the profile. The cream is still very faint and the black pepper has dropped out. The retrohale just carries the general wood note. As the third comes to a close, the profile remains primarily wood with a slight mustiness. The strength in this third was mild-medium.
